The newer location hasn't been around long enough to gather the charm of the original, but I'm sure it will come in time. Now, to the manager...they certainly picked the right man for the job! Francois usually...

The room was clean and comfortable, if a little basic, but we were happy enough. Our host Francois was fantastic, he made sure we had drinks, offering wine and beer,...

The Lodge is located in Lakefield (Benoni), in a safe area 20 minutes far from the Tambo International Airport. The Lodge is also 5 minutes walk from Korsman Bird Sanctuary, a nice nature place, perfect for a promenade and for birdwatching. We spent at the lodge two separated nights in two different rooms. Both rooms were very confortable, clean and...

Stayed 1 night. They arranged transfers from J'Burgh OR Tambo airport. Hotel is close to airport, which is 10-15 away. Very comfortable bed, heating in room, huge bathroom with spa bath. Staff friendly and welcoming. Hotel seemed very homely and is in a quiet location. Breakfast great too. Convenient for short stay before or after safari. Would stay there again.
