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.

Today was a travel day from Victoria Falls to Johannesburg so we got to sleep in a bit (a luxury these days) and had breakfast at the Royal Livingstone Hotel and then packed and transferred to the Livingstone airport for our flight on SAA to Johannesburg. This was actually going backwards because we ultimately want to get to get to Kigali in Rwanda …
Well, it just pays to be more alert in Johannesburg because a kind gesture may end up to be a blackmail.
When they brought us to the venue to wait for the shuttle service, they demanded that we give them something for Christmas. When we told them that we had no South African Rands, they say we can pay them in USD! And the best is they demanded for USD$10!
My friend and I seriously ...
... allowed in so finished it off by the gates before heading in. Beer tokens had to be bought so from 1 queue to another we were finally set to investigate our seats. Ended up chatting to someone from the same complex as we were staying completely by chance – how random who also had space in their coach as well however we never ended up going back to find them. As it was such a smooth journey to get there we ended up with hours to kill at the stadium but the sun ...
... all in varied states of repair, along with the local van/taxis that shuttle people around. Usually overloaded with people and their belongings.
It's a mind numbing drive.
I pass the time by focusing on one of the splattered bugs on the windshield, and use that as a "marker" to slalom through the hash marks that are the road divider. I move my head left and right as I move the smudge through the hashes. Then I speed up until I miss a hash. My ...
