JOHANNESBURG

Sandton is Johannesburg's most exclusive residential and business area. You have a choice of several fine hotels adjoining Sandton City, the primary shopping centre in the area, including the sophisticated Sandton Sun and Towers Inter-Continental and the Renaissance-style Michaelangelo Hotel. Catering for discerning visitors, these hotels offer luxury accommodation and service in elegant surrounds.

The new Rosebank Grace Hotel offers a more personalised, country atmosphere while the service remains impeccable.

A fascinating and entertaining option for an overnight at the start or end of your journey is Lesedi, a multi-cultural village just outside Johannesburg offering select overnight accommodation as guests of African families. In the village there are four homesteads, each inhabited by a family of elders, wives and children belonging to the Basotho, Pedi, Xhosa and Zulu tribes. Each homestead has been built in the architectural style of the tribe to which the family living there belongs. Four huts in each homestead have been adapted to meet the needs of the modern traveller (for example electricity, western beds with sheets and blankets and adjoining bathrooms with toilet, shower and basin with hot and cold water). Share in the culture, myths, fables, beliefs, dance and music and experience uniquely African cuisine and beverages.
