We stayed at La Bougain Villa to recover from jet lag and to explore Joburg before taking off for a Kruger safari. The villa is in a very safe and quiet neighborhood, walking distance to the Rosebank shops and restaurants, Gautrain and the African Market.
Our room was lovely and well stocked with coffee, tea, biscuits and fruit. Chris, the owner, was always more than eager to give us a lift if needed. Georgina prepared a wonderful breakfast every morning with such pride. Close by, there is a great local pub, Giles, which is very safe to walk to any time, even after dark.
