Elizabeth attended PEPFAR's conference on gender equity at the same time that Nevin and Judy had already planned to be in Johannesburg visiting church friends we have known for years. Thanks PEPFAR for coincidently changing the dates of Elizabeth's conference!

Nevin and Judy spent five days at The Farm, south of Johannesburg, a rural …

Africa's Richest Square Mile

A travel blog entry by adventuregirl21


Johannesburg is the largest city in South Africa and the emphasis is on making money - whether in business or on the streets - and has been since its beginnings when the world’s richest gold fields were discovered in Johannesburg during the 1880s. To an outsider, Johannesburg, or Jo-burg as it’s more commonly known, can be a little …

Johannesburg, South Africa

A travel blog entry by a3dennert


Business took me this time all the way to Johannesburg, South Africa, and Harare, Zimbabwe. Have no clue if I will be fortunate to visit here again anytime in the near future so I decided to snap the few pictures I could in the little time I had here.

Joburg Burbs

A travel blog entry by carlaandmike


So far Jo'burg or Jozi has been great to us and we have been taking it easy. For the first few days that we have been here we have taken NO pictures, visited NO sights, and gone on NO tours! Johannesburg and most likely South Africa as a whole is a first world nation – with first world prices. We received a price shock when we took a taxi …

    An excellent base for exploring Joburg

    We stayed here for three nights in August 2011 and had a wonderful stay. The room was newly renovated, the beds were extremely comfortable and the only complaints were our room looked out on a somewhat sketchy alley and was located very far away from the main lobby. However, the staff, amenities and overall condition of the property were all excellent. It is walking distance to several shopping areas and there are some really good restaurants nearby. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it as a good value in the Joburg area.

    Only stayed here one night. We arrived before the advertised check-in time and were still provided with our rooms.

    Hotel has 2 pools - both set in nice garden surroundings.

    Great location - only 5 min walk to Mandela Square where you can find a whole host of restaurants.
