I had a great time here even if it was only for a short few days. I was there for a tradeshow in the Gallagher convention center; it's only a 5 minute taxi ride away. Fiston, the assistant manager, who you can always find around, is super friendly and helpful! He arranged everything I asked: a dedicated taxi, brought me...

The main house is a wonderful thatched building with an honesty bar. We stayed in one of the cottages in the beautiful gardens which was well appointed with TV, heaters and electric blanket. I didn't realise how cold Joberg can get during the night! There is also a pool (bit cold out of summer season) tennis court, pool table and...

This lodge is amazing, the minute you come in you forget the noise and crowd of suburbian Johannesburg. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the breakfast is super good and copious, the grounds are beautiful, and above all the service is brilliant, very attentive and friendly staff. Try Dada's kitchen for diner, cheap, abundant and delicious.

A excellent property managed by generous people. I and my wife loved the stay at African Footprint Midrand. We were exhibitors at SAITEX fair held in June 2014 and the convention center was very close to it. I must say that hospitality extended to us was excellent. Hemansu Tewari India

After staying quite a few different places in Johannesburg on various trips, we have finally found a place that is a great value and a great place to relax. The garden setting is really nice and makes you feel very removed from the busy city. Very welcoming and friendly. The rooms are really simple and nothing fancy, but the bed...

This AFL is a real gem of a place to relax. I have traveled throughout the world but this one is high up there with the best I have seen. From the garden, the clean rooms, room facilities to amazing Fisten(facility manager) and his team. Keep it up. I was meant to travel to Sandton and look for another accommodation...

Nice facility. The manager is a super friendly Congolese gentleman and goes the extra mile to make sure you are comfortable. The setting is really peaceful, food great. The rooms are well above average, but nothing to write home about though. I would definitely stay here again.
