Situated in 'The Parks' of Johannesburg the Guest House is in a central yet very peaceful area of Johannesburg and within easy access to the main motorway. Parkview is part of the Greater Rosebank More Region and our Guest House is just around the corner from Johannesburg Zoo, the famous Orient Express Westcliff Hotel and Parkview Golf Course. The streets are lined with Jacaranda Trees and the bird life is exceptional. At the Zoo Guest House offers executive en-suite rooms in the Main House as well as self-contained units in the Garden. Secure parking is available on the Guest House grounds. Less
