Gorgeous & unusual Joburg sightseeing experience

Growing up in India, you think you know all there is to know about the Mahatma and his teachings. However, the Satyagraha house in Joburg gives you an indepth perspective about Gandhi as a man on his way to being the Mahatma. While Natal and Durban have their Gandhi sites, the one in Joburg is where he stayed with Kallenbach... More

Quiet and peaceful is this establishment. The receptionist and all staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We stayed on two occasions for one night each and must say it was delightful. So much history and the little museum is so very interesting

We spent a splendid night in this wonderful hotel with so much culture! It was very interesting to learn more about Gandhi and how he lived in South Africa. Next to that, the room was just beautiful and the stuff extremely nice and helpful. The food is amazing too, just a little salty! We loved it there for sure and... More

A visit to the Satyagraha house revealed facets of Gandhi's life that were hidden from the usual narrative. I did not know that Gandhi had spent more than 20 years in South Africa organizing the struggles of the oppressed. The Satyagraha house tour was given by one of the management responsible for maintaining the house. Time well spent.

We visited this place on 16th May, 2016. Our original plan was to visit Pietermaritzburg to follow the life and times of MK Gandhi in South Africa. Somehow, that plan fell through and we were told that there was a place in Johannesburg where Gandhi lived for a while. This place was very well maintained by a French Company and... More

We had called ahead to reserve lunch and when we arrived the welcome was warming and they started us off with lunch and then finished off with the tour of the place. The lunch is vegetarian and there is no menu. They just prepare a nice dish each day. Surprise menu was good. The lunch cost was R170 each (a... More

If you want to study Mahatma Gandhi's life, this is one place you would love to visit. He lived in this house during his stay in Johannesburg and thanks to amazing work of management, they have preserved it as if it is frozen in time. Each room has so much of history, don't forget to visit attic where Mahatma Gandhi... More

A truly hidden gem in the heart of Joburg - captures the life of Gandhi - his journey through South Africa and the impact that he had on people that came into contact with him - very profound and absolutely worth a visit - only visited the place with my late uncle - otherwise would have probably not gone there...
