My wife and I were looking for a hotel to stay midway between Jo'burg Airport and our final destination at the Limpopo-Lipadi Game and Wilderness Reserve. Our plane landed in Jo'burg at 5 pm and after we picked up our rental car we were on our way via very nice freeway to Mokopane, about 3 hours away. To have found such a nice hotel in Mokopane was a delight. Our check in was smooth, the front desk very helpful and the room more like a 1970's motel room with parking lot access. We were at first somewhat concerned about that arrangement but upon entering the large room those fears vanished. The room was very large, with a small kitchenette. What impressed us was how clean and well maintained the room and entire property was. SPOTLESS. We walked to the dining room for a superb steak and veggie dinner, all for $10 a person. The internet worked well and the front desk staff volunteered to help us with some complicated travel issues that required phone calls and e-mail. All done with smile and for free. I wholeheartedly recommend this property and will put it on our return list.
