I had booked to stay at this lodge for a one night layover in Johannesburg. The representative met me late and told me to wait for another guest. Then another gentleman arrived, grabbed my suitcase and walked off while talking in a local language with the rep. No effort was made to introduce me to the other gentleman or offer an explanation for what was going on. I was bundled into a full van with other disgruntled guests who apparently were kept waiting for my arrival. When I presented my booking confirmation, confusion ensued. The lodge was fully booked and they did not have a room available; this despite my having e-mailed Anthony to confirm my booking and received a reply that all was in order. Finally, I was told that they were going to 'upgrade' me to a room in Club Safari. Although I was disappointed, I was satisfied to have a place to lay my head for the night. Then I was asked to wait while the driver had dinner. There is a cut-off time for placing dinner orders and it would have been gracious to be allowed to have dinner there since I had to wait for the driver.
Club Safari was very disappointing - see review. Although I'd have liked to have the MoAfrika experience, I am not going to risk booking it again.
