"These are the vital ingredients that go towards making for a great guest experience..." so says Stevie, owner and ( alongside his wife ), host of this Lodge which oozes personality ! An unexpected stopover in Jo'burg led me to this place and how glad I am to be now able to recommend whole-heartedly 'Blue Mango'. Stevie picked me up in his car from the airport and '12 minutes' later we were 'at home'...having engaged in some greatly informative conversation. My room was large and provided comfort that ensured a good nights sleep. A great and home-made chicken curry was delivered fresh from the stove before I retired... The next day was a bonus. Stevie arranged for me to be driven around some of the key Jo'burg sites ( Nelson Mandela's house in Soweto for example ) by a local taxi driver who did a super job in facilitating a thoroughly enjoyable, 8 hour site-seeing experience ( total cost R1800 ). I was dropped back at the airport in good time for my 7pm flight.
At R695 + R100 ( for the curry ), Blue Mango represents excellent value that will ensure a 2nd stay when I'm next 'in town'....
