hi Chris

It's a very good area (for Jo'burg) but do not walk around there on your own at night.

Eastgate is a very large, quite upscale mall. The surrounding area is a very upscale residential area with large houses and townhouse complexes. Bruma Lake is nearby with a big curio and craft market that is open during the week.
It's quite far from Randburg waterfront. At a guess I'd say 15 to 20 miles. Maybe 20 mins to 1/2 an hour.

There are a few hotels nearby also. I cannot picture exactly where the Holiday Inn is in relation to the Mall.

It's about 15 minutes to the airport.

But you will need a car and DO NOT walk across any open ground to get to Bruma or to the Mall.

Yup, agree with the Lisa's comment, Eastgate is our fav shopping centre, but apart from the Bruma Flea market you have to drive to get anywhere else.
Enjoy your stay!
