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.

... it is the highest country in the world - measured using a country's lowest point).Went to the local shebeen and tried the maize alcohol which I'm surprised didn't upset me in any way. it was a matter of chewing your way through it. Kids were certainly happy to see us - tourism is one of the few money spinners in this part of the world.
Onwards to Johannesburg where I stopped for the night. Apparently Jozi as it is ...
... 100 babies born every day - most to unwed teenage mothers. So the cycle continues and getting out of poverty is a real problem. It was uncomfortable being there - felt very touristy - but our guide did a good job of explaining the issues and getting us to appreciate the problems faced by the residents. He used to live there, but left after he and his wife had been car hijacked 3 times. We ...
... us that they liked us and all stood waving us goodbye! Cash machine didnt work but assumed it was the machine as been busy today being Mothers Day. So just went to the cinema and to avoid the Queue bought the tickets at the machine using my card, which was fine. Went upstairs though and when trying to pay for the drinks and popcorn my card wouldnt work! She tries this about four times much to my annoyance! I try to tel her that its just worked down stairs to pay for the tickets and ...
