I just returned from a 12 night safari trip to South Africa where I spent the first night at African Rock Hotel before starting the safari.
I arrived on a red-eye flight at 9am and was very happy to find a room ready for me, hours before the usual check in time, at no extra cost. The room was very comfortable and the garden offered a peaceful place to relax after the flight.
The wine and the food at the hotel restaurant were simply delicious.
I highly recommend African Rock Hotel.
