First of all, this lodge is not close to Rustenburg though it is listed as being in Rustenburg (which is at least an hour away as I drove through Rustenburg to get to this lodge). We stayed two nights at this site on both ends of a holiday out of JNB. The hotel was very nice with well-appointed rooms. There... More

Stayed a few nights here while in Johannesburg on business. Very friendly welcome, starting with the shuttle service from the airport. Asked for advice on a good running route while staying there and was taken on a quick detour to show me a good 5K out and back route from the hotel. Excellent freshly prepared food throughout the stay and... More

We stayed 3 nights at Africa Sky as the jump-off point for a safari in the Great Kruger Area. The guesthouse is close to the airport, in a somewhat industrial/warehouse area, but once you are on the grounds, it seems like you are in a secluded paradise. The service was outstanding, the food delicious and copious, and the rooms large... More

This was our fourth stay at the Afric Sky and certainly won't be our last. Although it is very convenient to the Johannesburg airport it feels a world away. The staff is warm and friendly and willing to accommodate any special needs. Breakfast and dinner are both very good. And the honor bar makes it easy to obtain drinks and... More

Great place to overnight if you are connecting through Jo'Burg. We had good food, ample drinks and a great fire pit. We were even able to do a little bird watching on our porch before dinner. They also arranged our meet and greet service which I recommend for international travelers. We were met at the gate, handed off to our... More

It was another great stay at the Africa Sky. Like most, we stayed there at the beginning and ending of our trip to South Africa. The rooms were neat and comfortable and the staff was attentive as always. We ate dinner and breakfast the next morning both nights we stayed and they were delicious. Deidre’s sons played with our son... More

We stayed at the Africa Sky Guesthouse on both the front-end and back-end of our recent safari. This was our 8th trip to Africa, so we are pretty familiar with the Johannesburg scene and places to stay there. We found Africa Sky to be conveniently located about 10 minutes from the airport and in a very tranquil and safe setting.... More

Africa Sky is known in Rustenburg to have a welcoming and friendly atmosphere, and in this it didn't disappoint -- a good example of South African hospitality. The place is beautiful, the rooms are well equipped and clean, and the location is central. We were disappointed by the lack of wifi. The website says that wifi access is available bun... More

We stayed here before and after our safari, just arriving from the airport and not needing to spend time in Johannesburg. It had been arranged for us through Wild Wings Safari's and it was perfect for us. A driver picked us up at the airport and took us to the guesthouse. The whole place is lovely and homey.

Spent 2 nights here in transit from the US to Zambia. We were looking for a quiet place to acclimate a little to the 6 hour time zone change and recover from our 16 hour flight before heading on to Zambia on safari. The rooms were quiet and comfortable. Food was excellent. They even prepared sandwiches for our lunch so... More
