“Rural Quality Near Johannesburg Airport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2011

My wife and I stayed twice (one night each) at Nkanga Lodge, while needing overnight accommodations between flights at JBurg/Tambo Airport. We arranged with Nkanga for both pick-up and return to the airport. The property has a fair amount of land, as so provides a rural atmosphere. There is even a pond you can walk partially around, on a trail. Our accommodation was in a native-style building (there were a few of them, having only one guest room in each). I think there may be some rooms in the main building. Our room was very large, and it had a large en-suite bathroom. The main building also housed an office, conference room, sitting room, kitchen, dining room, bar (in open covered area just outside) and more. It was very tastefully decorated with beautiful wood work, clearly out of the ordinary. Books and magazines were available to read. In particular, the kitchen, open to the dining room area, had exceptional wood cabinetry. You can see the thought that went into planning and building the lodge. Breakfast was provided and dinner can be arranged. We had dinner there - all meals were good. Though this is not a low-cost place, the service, accommodation, meals and attention were outstanding. The hosts were friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Nkanga as a place to overcome jet lag and relax overnight between flights.
