This is a great place to stay if you want to forget you are at an airport. The rooms are very nice and the grounds are beautiful. Only problem was finding the place.

We recently overnighted st the Safari Club en route from the Okavango Delta to Sabi Sands -WITHOUT our luggage. On hearing of our problem the manager, Corrie, offered to have our clothing laundered overnight and lend us night clothes (at no charge).The clothes arrived beautifully laundered and ironed by 7am. Add this to Godfrey's friendly airport transfer, the excellent breakfast and supper, the attractive layout and landscaping, Did I mention the lounge, the loft with honesty bar and the business centre? We completely recommend Safari Club for any stay in Jo'burg, not just a one night stopover.

Our family of 5 spent one night at the Safari Club after a long journey from the States. Our transport from the airport and then back in the morning to pick-up our rental car was complimentary. We stayed in the family room which was very clean and confortable. The breakfast was made-to-order and delicious. Everyone was very warm and welcoming. The Safari Club is a great value when you need to stay near the airport.

We had a stopover in Johannesburg - 2 adults and 3 children. We stayed in a family room, double bed, bunks and extra mattress on floor. The Safari Club is very close the airport and they met us off the plane. The place is an oasis in the industrial area beside the airport. Once you are behind the gates you could be far away from the rest of Johannesburg. We felt very safe, the pool is small but perfect to have a cooldown or sit beside in the evening. We ordered a take out although you could have their food, chicken or beef from what I can remember.

We stayed here on two separate overnights during our time in South Africa. It offered a reasonable rate for a hotel where we simply needed accomodation for the night. The staff is very friendly and accomodating, and went out of its way to transport us to our car rental at JNB airport.
The room is large, clean and comfortable and provides a decent place to stay near the airport. It is set in an industrial area, although the hotel grounds are nice, so dinner is either the selection the hotel offers, or order takeout , as there is no restaurant at the hotel or close. We ordered the hotel dinner (beef stew, salad, dessert) just OK on one of our stays. The second stay we ordered from a takeout menu, again just OK. Breakfast excellent.
You can't really go wrong staying here if you are looking for a clean, comfortable hotel near the airport.

We visited the Safari Club SA on three separate occasions while visiting South Africa in January 2008. We were delighted with this stylish and comfortable accommodation. The rooms were extremely comfortable, ’roomy’ and well appointed. The bar and the elegant lounge provided relaxed and enjoyable areas in which to plan or review the day. The separate internet room was a great idea to catch up on emails or business. A wonderful continental or cooked breakfast was included in the rate and a complimentary transfer to the airport.

The Safari Club SA, which is only 4kms from OR Tambo airport, is ideally situated and set-up for travellers wanting to stay in Johannesburg for a short period or just an overnight.

Our host Emile Muller, has many years experience in the hospitality industry and was a great help with information relating to our journey in South Africa and Botswana.

If planning a short stay in Johannesburg then we would certainly recommend the Safari Club SA as an excellent place to consider.
