All reviews carlton centre tallest building birds eye view pictures on the wall your bearings vantage point shopping centre worth the trip city tour africa observatory rand overview viewing security pity gandhi
We drew up next to a closed hotel and walked through a small mall - we had to go down an escalator to get the lift to the Top of Africa. Having been to many US cities and London it is surprising to hear that...More
Whilst the view is undoubtedly exceptional the place is literally falling apart with collapsed areas of ceiling all over, a hole in one of the windows, smashed up identifier plates and everything looking like they completed it in 1970 and never revisited it! Obviously used...More
The neighborhood surrounding the Carlton centre is not welcoming at all: downtown Johannesburg looks sad. It seems as if no one bothered to invest in this city in the last decades, which is just depressing.
The attraction is situated in the Carlton centre, which harbors...More
building is not easy to find in the mall,manage to get to the top but built 1971 not touched since, not worth paying for a tour popped in on the way to Soweto as hired a man and a care for the day and you...More
Followed a guide but otherwise would not have found the way in. Quite rundown at the top with no maintenance (or people) with dirty windows, missing linoleum and photographic displays falling off the wall. Good place to see views of the city in each direction...More
First you ride on a rickety elevator to ascend to a vacant floor surrounded by dirty windows that have been tarnished by peoples need to etch their names on the trims below them. Having been to many of these 360 viewing platforms - this was...More
I only have good things to say about GodListen, and there are not enough words to describe how amazing he is as a person, friend, and Mt. Kilimanjaro trek leader. My husband and I went on a private hike up Mt. Kilimanjaro for our honeymoon in February 2012 (Machame route). We had never planned such a big trip before and no matter how much we planned ahead of time we expected things to go wrong. We heard so many horror stories from people we talked with who have also attempted to climb Mt....More

Young couple, two weeks in South Africa, first trip! Advice? (4 Replies)
Hello! Thanks for reading this! I've planned many trips for us before but this trip I think I'm going to need some help to make the most of it. There's certainly a wealth of information available here and it's a bit like taking a drink from a fire hydrant so sorry if I'm asking again what others before me have. First, a little about us. We're a young married couple who will be visiting Africa for the first time. We have about 14 days available to us. I hope this will be enough time! We're...More

Thanks all for the replies! I'm going to talk it over with my wife and decide what we can trim down on. We originally had aspirations of doing Victoria Falls as well plus side trips to Lesotho and Swaziland but it is obviously way too much to get accomplished in such a short amount of time. Van de Caab, the Houtkapperspoort looks wonderful and fits our budget! Four stars at that! I think it would be an excellent base for our Western Cape half of the trip. Thank you for all your...More

Kilimanjaro climb in March - Looking for people to join me (0 Replies)
I am planning to climb Kilimanjaro in March 2012 and I’m looking for people to join me! I’ve been living and volunteering in Arusha for a few months now so I had the opportunity to get information about various companies. I chose to do the trip with a very professional locally owned company – Mbweha Trails. I believe in supporting locally owned businesses – so that the revenue earned from the trip goes 100% back to Tanzanians and the local community. I talked with other people who climbed...More
