Johannesburg
On arrival at Johannesburg International Airport, you will be met and transferred in a private vehicle to the Saxon Boutique Hotel, where you will spend the night.

Located in the tranquil, tree-lined suburb of Sandhurst, within minutes of Johannesburg's world-class shopping and business hub, The Saxon Boutique Hotel, Villas and Spa is the most exclusive private retreat, set on ten acres of landscaped gardens. The Saxon's contemporary African interior is light, airy and spacious, leaving a lasting impression of stately elegance interspersed with novel Eastern accents and African artefacts. Nelson Mandela chose these serene surroundings for editing his best-selling autobiography, A Long Walk to Freedom. Many discerning travellers have returned time and again to experience the unequalled qualities for which the Saxon has gained worldwide renown. Understated, graceful and unparalleled in quality, The Saxon is the pinnacle of African hospitality.

Set amongst towering trees overlooking a 1500-acre lake, this forest like lodge, with its rough-hewn architecture, is inspired by the bold and vibrant culture of the local Shangaan people who have lived in the region for thousands of years. Beyond the lodge, hundreds of baobab trees punctuate the untouched wilderness of ridges, outcrops, ironwood and mountain acacia woodlands which are home to a great variety of rare and abundant wildlife, as well as hundreds of bird species and ancient rock paintings.
