Staying at Ginnegaap was a perfect start to a 2 week solo trip in South Africa. I stayed for a night here when I first arrived to Joburg in mid-December 2012, and was very happy to be here. I loved the decor - the guesthouse is lovely, very safe, clean, charming, and comfortable. My room was simple, sweet, and clean, with a homey feel. They are a half-hour drive from the JNB airport towards other attractions (for which they have tours available!), and they arrange for a shuttle if you ask. The breakfast was good, and Corlien, Jacco and staff were warm hosts. I was sad they were booked up on my way back through Johannesburg, or I'd have stayed with them again.
