I'll take it at $150. I start flinching at $200

Mike - If I were traveling alone, the Peermont Metcourt rooms are fine at 595R, $86, includes breakfast. Use that $64 savings to buy snacks/booze on the airline!!!!

Which reminds me, you know how I'd spend a million dollar lottery winner?
I'd spend half of it on booze and broads and waste the other half !!!

ps - thanks W.C. Fields

Mike, that mut be the single person rate? The rates I had quoted were for 2 people as we are a couple. It seems City Lodge charges a significant amount more for the second person...almost 400R! Sorry for any confusion caused by my ignorance of local pratices.

Ovenbird, that is interesting, yes, it was a single person rate. I have not found many hotels that charge more for couples. Thanks for the extra information.

The whole idea of charging for a 2nd person in a room is crazy. Just charge for the room and go from there. If breakfast or dinner is included, then it makes some sense. If just for a room then that is crazy.

I have been lurking as I might need a JNB hotel. I checked the rates for my dates and the rate of ZAR 1093 is for one or two. There is a higher rate for b&b.

We need a room southeast of Joburg, I think. Still researching. We will arrive very late if we try to get all the way after a game drive on those short June days. (from Hluhluwe area)

Anyone stayed near the Cradle of Humankind?

We are staying at the Protea OR Tambo next week, I booked it on for 878ZAR for 2. From the reviews it looks pretty good for the price. They also have a free shuttle from 6:15-22:45.
