Loved staying with Soekie at Malikana Guesthouse for two nights in November (1st and 6th). We arrived in Joburg and Soekie was right there to great us at the airport and take us to her home. From the time we arrived until we reluctantly had to leave she treated us like family. I was traveling with g adventures and luckily...

Don't know where to start,but this place is AMAZING! First bed and breakfast experience and it was the best. Very warm and felt so much like HOME! Food was absolutely amazing. If we ever go back we will definitely consider staying here again.

The Malikana Guesthouse is located in Kempton Park, about 15 minutes from the airport. It is a great starting place for a safari. The place is very welcoming, thanks to the owner, Soukie, who looks after guests every need. I came in early morning and she arranged a tour of Johannesburg for me before I was to meet up with...

My girlfriend and I spent 2 nights at Malikana Guesthouse before our Kruger Safari offered by G Adventures and 2 additional nights after. Everything there is to say can be said by telling that we already recommended the guesthouse to everybody we talked to so far (Friends & Family). Soekie and her team do an outstanding job in making your...

Our 4 night stay was like a home away from home. Great hosts who endeavoured to make a most memorable stay. Access to a great driver / tour guide- Timothy was excellent - and very reasonable. Souki and her husband Baurend made us very welcome into their home. Food and drinks were wonderful!

Soekie (owner/operator) pours her heart and soul into this operation and it shows! She is the most welcoming and lovely host, ensuring you have everything you could ever need. My brother unexpectedly had a Skype interview during our stay at Soekie's and she bent over backwards to ensure everything went smoothly: had his shirt ironed, fetched him a tie, and...

Stayed here as part of a tour group, first experience with a Guesthouse (unfamiliar term in US, possibly comparable to B&Bs but I'm not 100% sure I'd make that comparison). Sukie and her family and her team provide such a warm and welcoming environment, and she is just the absolute hostess with the mostest. It's so fun to be welcomed...

If you are visiting Joburg, you must stay here! Soekie's house is the perfect spot to call home. The grounds are beautiful, both animals and gardens, but the true beauty is in the way you are made to feel like family. While the rooms are lovely, clean and spacious, you have no desire to stay in them because you want...

Stayed here for a night pre/post a Kruger Safari. Appreciated the proximity to airport but being far enough away not to hear it. The hosts were the best thing about Malikana, so welcoming and accommodating! Rooms were all very comfortable, quiet with AC and fans which was great. Food is delicious and plentiful! Highly recommend!!!

We had the pleasure of staying here at the begining and end of our Safari. Rooms were clean and comfortable with touches of luxury. The home cooking for breakfast and dinner was delicious. Soekie and her husband were lovely hosts, who welcomed us as family and made us feel right at home. I would have no problem recommending Malikana Guesthouse...
