We stayed in the lodge when arriving at Johannesburg. Very friendly and reactive personnel. After two weeks of traveling we were very happy with the accommodation and more specifically the bath tub in the room. Breakfast included a nice fresh fruit platter next to normal bread, cereal etc

We stayed here on our way to Botswana and Zimbabwe for a safari. We had some hiccups and Francois was AMAZING to us....for example, he drove more than 30 minutes across town to buy us a camera battery when we found ours had died. Food is great, rooms are clean and lovely, beds are comfortable, food was good, and value... More

What a hospitality, a great staff and very nice place to stay overnight before you explore the country. We stayed here twice, once when we landed and once before we went back home. They have a shuttle that brings you to the airport.

We have been using Outlook Lodge for years. Nothing changes - prompt airport pick-up and return, comfortable rooms, very nice dinners and a continental breakfast. Francois and the crew do a great job. The property has been slowly upgraded over the years. Wi-Fi and DSTV. 15 minutes from Johannesburg International Airport. You are always a name and not a room...

Our Sabi Sands safari company booked Outlook Lodge for us, so I was not sure what to expect at all. Myself and two family members were picked up from the OR Tambo airport and transported to Outlook Lodge, situated in a quiet and secure neighborhood. We were immediately greeted by one of the managers, Francois, and made to feel welcome.... More

We stayed here for 1 night on the way through to Kruger. A lovely and secure lodge with an exceptional host. François was attentive and made us feel very welcome. The food was delicious and the room clean and spacious. Couldn't ask for anything more after a long overnight flight. Would recommend to anyone visiting Johannesburg.

Popping into Jo-Burg for a night before our visit to the Kruger National Park it was ideal for us to be close to the airport and in a location where Tydon Tours could collect us from. The accommodation was good and the team very friendly, we booked dinner and breakfast as part of the package which proved a good idea.... More

I enjoyed a great two night stay at the Outlook Lodge. The building is located in a nice secure area. Francois was very warm and welcoming and was super amazing with all of the guests. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The common area in the lodge was nice and cozy, especially with the fireplace going. It was a... More

A great place, it really feels like home. Francois and the team are so welcoming. The food was brilliant. I loved the room so spacious with everything you need. It's so close to the airport and not far from a shopping mall
