My sister and I recently returned from our trip to South Africa and our safari into Botswana. After continual "cautionary" warnings about Johannesburg, we were a little afraid. After researching, we decided to stay at the Blue Mango Lodge. We were flying standby, so our arrival date was uncertain. Steve, the owner, was so cooperative. He worked with our tentative schedule with patience and quick replies. He was waiting for us when we arrived, and drove us to his very peaceful place. His lovely wife and beautiful child greeted us, and we were offered a meal and a smile. The rooms were all very clean and inviting, and the deep bathtub was immaculate and the soak was a welcome retreat after the long hours of travel. I joined Steve to watch the world cup soccer match, and we had some intelligent conversation over a nice glass of S. African wine. He transported us to an ATM in the morning then on to our rental car. He helped us plan our route and offered us great ideas and local knowledge. Truly a perfect begging to our S. African adventure, and I would definitely stay there again if I am fortunate enough to be able to go back there.
