A short 10-15 minute walk to the grocery store, wine store, atm, Dros (restaurant). This was a perfect base to spend the night before picking up our safari vehicle. It is located in a safe neighborhood. The breakfast...

Nice and small guesthouse with just a few rooms around a garden and pool, felt safe and comfortable. Supermarket just a 10-15 minutes walk...

We stayed here for a week in December 2015 . Salo & Graham made as very welcome and were happy to suggest excursions etc in the local area. The rooms were modern & spotless, and cooked breakfasts were on offer every day. Would recommend it and we will certainly visit again when we are next in Johannesburg.

During a recent travel in South Africa with my girlfriend I stayed with Graham and Sola at the Linga Longa bed and breakfast twice. Overall the stop-overs for connecting flights left behind a positive impression. The bed and breakfast itself contained a pool, a small bar, 7-8 rooms and a small living room where breakfast was served. The rooms (we...

Graham and Salo are the perfect hosts! We traveled to South Africa and wanted a place that was close to the airport, and where we could get a good rest, have a tasty breakfast and relax, kick back and just feel at home, and Linga Longa was the place to do just that! The guesthouse is close to shops, Gautrain,...
