I have to aree with the other reviews. I visited Graton with my 16 yr old daughter for 3 nights prior to a very special riding safari. My priority was safety, to keep my husband happy at home with regards to his precious daughter! Graham picked us up from the airport from our evening flight and we were made to feel very welcome and comfortable that evening. The following day we did a tour with Graham including the Apartheid museum and Soweto. Graham is a very relaxed and very interesting tour guide. We both loved the whole day we could have done with longer at the apartheid museum but we are both particularly interested in the topic so the time may be fine for most. The following day we went to the craft market in rosebank- kindly dropped off by Tony and caught a taxi back. Another lovely day, Beth loved the African dancing outside.
Eating out is easy, plenty of nearby restaurants. Graham and Tony said we were fine to walk even in the dark. We did, and we were fine but other single female guests were not so happy to. However there is a local service to deliver food from any of the restaurants so walking isn't necessary.
The stay at Graton was a joy from start to finish. It is a beautiful place, lovely lounge to spend the evening, incredible hospitality. We felt more like distant relatives than guests to the point that I nearly forgot to pay!!
