What Mo Africa has going for it: reasonably priced, near the airport (with free shuttle), quiet location, fairly modern facility.
However, there were some issues with operations management during my stays (August 2012). First of all, the staff was just a bit too layed back to be running an operation like this. Several times, after ordering breakfast an hour earlier, they would serve it at the exact time of my departure. This is a long time to wait, and just doesn't work when you are trying to catch an airport or tour pick up.
On both of my stays, spaced two weeks apart, they were out of many food and drink items. (How hard is it to keep red wine stocked in South Africa?!) This normally wouldn't be a big problem, but due to the location, you are pretty much at their mercy for meals, unless you have your own car.
Finally, the staff was not organized about who was staying in what room, when check outs were, what we owed for our stay, etc. Pretty basic stuff when you are running a B & B...
Bottom line - nice place, needs to be properly managed.
