TravelPod Member ReviewsInterContinental Johannesburg OR Tambo Airport Kempton Park
I arrived in Johannesburg after two 9-hour over-night flights and was close to death by exhaustion... So when my mom told me that we were staying at this hotel, right next to the airport, I wasn't too excited. All I wanted to do was sleep and recover from the flights, and I was pleasantly surprised upon arriving at the Intercontinental Hotel. It was very quiet in my room - I barely realized the close proximity to the airport because I did not hear a single plane fly over. The room was delightful and the bedding was soft and cozy. Food wise, it isn't very vegan-friendly. I ordered the only vegan dish on the menu, which was a vegetable stew, and they put cheese on the dish... after I asked if they could please ensure the absence of any dairy. But, the bread was good! So, in all, this hotel was perfect to collect and compose myself.

Arrived in Addis Ababa about 06.50 local time, not much to do at the airport, quite small and not much going on at that time of day and a lack of seats around the main concourse, luckily our connecting flight to Johannesburg was at 08.50 and they'd opened the gate for it pretty early so there was more seats available to sit down and sleep, something I hadn't managed much of on the flight over. Boarded and were on the way to Jo'burg. Slept almost the entire journey ...
... over the phone rather than over a camp fire. That evening around nine we decided that we had driven more than enough. We were getting tired and it was against our plans to drive at night during this trip to begin with. Since we turned off from the highway to head for the northern section of Kruger Park, which was still about 300 km away, we had not seen any signs for hotels. Finally we found a sign that sent us off into the dark on a little gravel road through the ...
... animal zoo. We did not really know what to expect but when we arrived there were some chickens, guinea pigs and a small playground area. The kids absolutely loved it. When we were done there we went to Milky Lane for ice cream and some lunch for the adults. We had some weird waffle like pizza's that I think we have all decided to not eat again.
I wish I had taken a notebook to write down some of ...
