My husband and I are taking a 2 week safari in June. We will have 5 days in Joburg following our tour to relax before flying home to the States. (We do spend one night in Joburg during the safari. We will stay at The Grace Hotel)
So our question is: Where should we stay?
Back to The Grace Hotel in Rosebank? They seem to have mixed reviews on tripadvisor. But are adjacent to a shopping mall with restaurants, and such. Seems like safety is pretty assured in this neighborhood. Would you suggest this? Or is there another hotel in this area that would be better.
Or the Intercontinental Palazzo? Is this in Sandton? They seem to be connected to another casnio/shopping/dining area.
Or a different choice?
We would really appreciate your input. After dashing around SA for two weeks, we are looking forward to have a relaxing 5 days. But wouldn't mind the opportunity for sight-seeing around Joburg...if it's safe enough. That's our main concern. The Grace claims to have a travel desk on site to help with local arrangements...
Please help! We've run out of time and have to book! :)
