“Great accomodations”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Missed our flight out of Johannesburg. Someone at airport recommended the Blue Mango. Steve picked us up - very friendly and informative. Had a common eating area where one felt at home (included a well stocked bar) - met guests from all over the world. Went running in the morning - felt safe. That was followed by a full English breakfast, which was superb. Since out flight was later that evening, Steve hooked us up with one of his friends who took us to the "Cradle of Humankind". Steve & Daisy provided us with a delightful experience.

Stayed for a couple of days and chose Blue Mango mostly due to location. We did not want to stay at the extremely overpriced airport hotels but didn't want to go into town due to location of our business activities. Stevie (the owner along with his wife Daisy) were very accommodating. It's a perfectly good, clean accommodation but it's a guesthouse, not a hotel. Be sure to book a room with ensuite bath or you'll be inconvenienced by going down the hall. Very clean, good breakfast served at your convenience. Location a bit tricky if you are driving in. Free pickup from the airport offered.

Dear Alice,

It was our pleasure to host you whilst in Johannesburg. Your years of hotelier experience and input were invaluable. We believe that clean linen and comfortable beds are a major factor in client satisfaction, as such Daisy has spent many sleepless nights at her sewing machine stitching top class Egyptian cotton linen and pillowcases to help "add value" to the sleep quality of our valued customers. We have had so many compliments about the linen that Daisy has started a separate line which offers linen for sale.

We look forward to hosting you again soon.

Kind Regards
Stevie

The owner came and picked me up from the air port, soon as I got here they asked me about lunch I said "sure" 40 mins? Nope it was right away! Wow very tasting and they sure do know how to make you feel welcome! The rooms are really nice, i had a wonderful shower even slept great! They have a bar here mane! Dinner was great as well even sat with people I've never met.....WHAT A GREAT VIBE AND FEELING! Get this the owner even sat and had a 2hr conversation with all of us while enjoying dinner. The workers here are very sweet, helpful, attend to anything you may need if not the owner is on point. Free wifi in the lodge, not sure what else to say but if I come back ill just come back to visit this PLACE! I have to leave today I must just miss my flight! ;)

Hi Brandon,

Blue Mango has had the pleasure of hosting people from professions as varied as a NASA physicist, Marine Biologists, Bankers, Gunsmiths and even a master artist from the Basque region of Spain who hand crafts models of alien embryo,s but we can safely say that you were indeed the first rapper to come through our doors.

You were great fun mate and we hope you back to us soon. Please send us some pics of your soon to be arriving baby.

Kind Regards
Stevie

Steve and Daisy were Great. The atmosphere was truly remarkable. I felt like I was a guest in a
private residence. This was my first trip to Africa and the Blue Mango Lodge was the perfect transition from the United States. Extremely clean, helpful staff, wonderful food, reliable transportation, everything one could expect from a first class organization. The price was more than reasonable and I met other interesting people from all over the world. Thanks for everything Blue Mango, keep up the good work.
Sincerely,
K.C.
