Long layover at JNB--nearby restaurant? Luggage?

Jump to last reply

We will depart Tswalu on a charter flight (a Tuesday in October) scheduled to arrive at the Anglo-American hangar at JNB at 4:30pm. We then have until 11:30pm before our KLM departure to AMS.

So: What is best/most comfortable use of the interim? I am flying Business to AMS/JFK. Will I be able to check my luggage upon arrival at the airport and if not, can I safely lodge it in the Business Lounge while I go for dinner? (Would like to shrink wrap the checked bags, so perhaps do this upon arrival at the airport?)

Once luggage is safely stowed, the question of dinner arises. A few years ago I had a decent dinner at a hotel within walking distance of the terminal; I am guessing that this was the Intercontinental Southern Sun. I believe their main restaurant is Quills. Would that be a good spot for a farewell dinner? If not, what are the other options for a sit-down dinner in comfortable surroundings; willing to take taxi if great food is at the end of the ride, but perhaps not a great idea to leave the airport environs.

Finally, I've read mixed reports about the KLM lounge; is it a comfortable base to relax for a few hours after dinner? Any tips? I remember a decent bookstore at JNB; any other interesting shopping, perhaps for local goods? Any supermarkets at the airport?

Many thanks.

I am so looking forward to my return visit to this beautiful country!!
