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.

The ocean in Tofo had none of the spectacular colors of the Vilanculos waters and from the air looked familiar. As the plane gained altitude the view inland became a uniform scattering of round thatched huts as far as the eye could see. The sense of poverty tangible even from up here. The desperate state of the ...
... all the different ways people have tried to express themselves through their homes. After years of oppression and control which ran as deep and petty as how your shack appeared, the community here is proud to have a brick wall, front door or even burglar bars that they personally chose. As opposed to what was forced upon them. Across the tracks from Diepkloof is an area called Diepkloof Extension. Still classed as Soweto but 'Extension' as it is referred to here doesn't ...
... telling her she could only use our face paint to decorate her 20-year-old stomach if I could do the painting. After a moment's consideration, I decided this was probably too much like sexual harassment, and that Yvette would probably drop a dime on me with Amy anyway. So I graciously surrendered our paints with no quid-pro-quo.
We were way early at the stadium, in time to see both teams come out to ...
