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.

So here we had the perfect opportunity to donate one of ...
... were kept away from normal prisoners. And normal ones were picked up for anything: stealing, murder, rape, trying to organize politically, not having your papers on you, being out beyond curfew. All together.
After this we got to go into the Constitutional Court. Beautiful. The design was mesmorizing. Then we got to sit inside. All the hearings are open to the public. And the justices...they sure are one of a kind. The Chief Justice is blind. Another is openly gay and HIV ...
... the world, with 30% of the adult population infected. In 1992 the figure was only 3.9%. They think the increase is down to a trucking route which runs through the country, meaning the lorry drivers are spreading it all around the country. At customs there are free condoms, and we have seen big signs by the side of the road saying 'use condoms.'
We got dropped off at our hostel with 6 other people who were travelling on the same bus.
