“All Around Great Stay!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

My group absolutely loved staying at African Footprints. The entire compound is massive, great big pool, yards, tennis courts, outdoor bbq, the perfect retreat between Joburg and Pretoria. I will always stay at AFL when I travel through Joburg, it's great to know there is a safe comfortable accommodation for my friends and family in South Africa. Tell the managers Lyyod and Fistin I said hello when you stay, they're amazing and will help you with anything you need!

Room Tip: There's lots to choose, from cabins to dorms, can't go wrong, really reasonable prices and m...

Our recent (2/2013) stay at African Footprints Lodge was fantastic. The accomodations are newly updated and beautiful. The staff is friendly and can help you plan great area adventures. Breakfasts are fantastic. It's a beautiful property, we can't wait to return.

A group of four friends and I just recently spent two weeks in South Africa and had an amazing experience at African Footprints Lodge in Midrand. After arriving on property, we were immediately impressed by the beauty and upkeep of the lodge and the verdant gardens that surround the property. The interior of the lodge is equally impressive with a spacious TV lounge, pool table room, dining room, and honesty bar. The guest rooms are spacious – with their own TVs – ample closet space and extremely comfortable beds. After traveling from Cape Town earlier in the day, we found the lodge as a much needed relaxing oasis from the long day. Immediately outside of the TV lounge is a covered patio - a beautiful place to sit and watch the intense Johannesburg summer electrical storms. Beyond the covered patio is a shining blue pool that was equally refreshing to cool off in after enjoying the summer heat. To sum it up - this place is a gem and an amazing value for the price. The honesty bar is well stocked and the guest house has an amazing cooked to order breakfast in the morning. It was absolutely delicious! The neighborhood around the guest house is safe with numerous dining options close by. Our group also appreciated the location - approximately 25 minutes from O.R. Tambo Airport, 20 minutes from downtown Johannesburg, and 20 minutes from the Lion Park. The service staff is extremely friendly and willing to help in any way possible. Fisten consistently helped us with any needs we had. Lloyd was wonderful and took great care of us. We had such a wonderful experience at African Footprints Lodge that we elected to visit the lodge again following our excursion to Kruger National Park. I would recommend this lodge to anyone looking for a well-kept, centrally guest house located, safe, and comfortable accommodation near Johannesburg. The next time I am in Johannesburg – I will definitely stay here again.

A group of friends and I were traveling in SA and were referred to African Footprints. We planned to stay there one night but after being there decided to stay for another. The staff was amazing and so helpful. The lodge is beautiful and a really comfortable place to stay. African Footprints is located in a really safe area close to downtown Joburg and the airport so it is really easy to get to.

I definitely recommend staying here when you make it to Joburg!

We had a wonderful stay at African Footprints. The lodge is on a beautiful piece of property. Some of the amenities include an honesty bar, tennis courts, a pool, picnic tables, grills, etc. We had been traveling quite a bit the days leading up to our stay at African Footprints and when we finally got there, we were able to relax and unwind before our safari. The location is convenient. Not too far from the airport, the LionPark and nice shopping centers. Another plus was the great hospitality the lodge offered. Free wi-fi, a nice breakfast, and wonderful staff all for a great price. We ended up extending our stay at African Footprints because we enjoyed it so much.

Our trip was with a group of 5 friends, so we stayed in the dorm rooms, but there were also adorable cottages if your stay is more on the romantic side.
