This lodge is amazing, the minute you come in you forget the noise and crowd of suburbian Johannesburg. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the breakfast is super good and copious, the grounds are beautiful, and above all the service is brilliant, very attentive and friendly staff. Try Dada's kitchen for diner, cheap, abundant and delicious.

A excellent property managed by generous people. I and my wife loved the stay at African Footprint Midrand. We were exhibitors at SAITEX fair held in June 2014 and the convention center was very close to it. I must say that hospitality extended to us was excellent. Hemansu Tewari India

After staying quite a few different places in Johannesburg on various trips, we have finally found a place that is a great value and a great place to relax. The garden setting is really nice and makes you feel very removed from the busy city. Very welcoming and friendly. The rooms are really simple and nothing fancy, but the bed... More

This AFL is a real gem of a place to relax. I have traveled throughout the world but this one is high up there with the best I have seen. From the garden, the clean rooms, room facilities to amazing Fisten(facility manager) and his team. Keep it up. I was meant to travel to Sandton and look for another accommodation... More

Nice facility. The manager is a super friendly Congolese gentleman and goes the extra mile to make sure you are comfortable. The setting is really peaceful, food great. The rooms are well above average, but nothing to write home about though. I would definitely stay here again.

We visited "Footprints" three times in our travels to SAfrica, and each time it was like arriving home. The welcome was always warm, the beds comfortable, the breakfast superb. It is a quiet oasis in a bustling town, will worth the quick trip out of Joburg.

We were to stay one night on arrival and one night again before we flew out of Johannesburg. We arrived very late due to dreadful Etihad airways and as it was very late,very dark and raining we decided to stay at an airport hotel for the first night. I contacted the lodge by email as I could not make contact... More

Everything about this African Footprints Lodge is relaxing. From the lush green gardens, to the shady pool and barbeque area and the well appointed rooms. The staff is excellent and helpful, the breakfast offer a bounty of African delights. Big fan of the 'trust' based bar etc. Excellent for a holiday or business.
