Dakota lodge is based at the old Rand Airport (Jan Smuts). Rooms face the runway, where small planes come and go. A restaurant is a 100 meter walk away. All with all an interesting lodge to stay. Also if you are not an aeroplane addict.

Always a pleasure staying at the Dakota Lodge, Rand Airport. Fantastic staff, always efficient and accommodating. Great location for anyone Aviation oriented. Within crawling distance of the Harvard Cafe 👍🏻✅👌🏻 You’ll struggle to beat this place overall.
