uncle tims centre

Reviewed By SamirAbdallahAli - Johannesburg, South Africa

This is a bit of a "one stop" collectable and antique center with a few other out doors type stores as well as arts and crafts stores. The stores themselves are for the most part not cheap however the quality of items on offer are in general are very good. so dont go if you are on a tight budget. The Moroccan antique and home store has some amazing things in it. There is also (a really expensive nursery) and a fantastic little book store called Kevins Cove which has piles and piles of books to rummage through. Next door to that is a second CD store which has a few great old titles to seek out if you have the time to go through all the racks of albums and Cd's. On sundays they have an open air market, mostly selling collectables and bric a brac. There are 2 on site coffee shops and ample open air parking further inside the complex. A good place to while away the time of an afternoon.

Robins Nest Day Spa

Reviewed By HonestReviewsByEm

Went with my partner and mom here for a massage, on arrival we were offered fresh orange juice while relaxing for 5-10minutes under the patio overlooking the pool and the garden.
The massage itself was fantastic, the masseuse was friendly and very attentive.
Would definitely return

The place is ex-B&B.In is on busy road.We were there on Sunday from 9.30am till 2pm.We had the princess package.
I wouls recommend the treetments:the thai therapists were nice plesant proffesional.We enjoyed our treetments the whole package was long but really good.
Just few comment:the lunch was preheated in microvawe and not fresh!
The jacuzzi in room didn't work.There was not enough shampoo in the shower.The noise from coming/going therapists,opened doors to the main passage during our treetments when we didn't have cloths on was really unplesant and disturbing.There was no hairdryer nor disposable treetment underwear!The rooms were cold-they didn't put the aircon on,only offered extra blanket and small heater on wall was on.The treetment beds didn't have el.blankets.(that would really help in the cold days )

Zebra Camper Hire

Reviewed By TravelDigest - Bunbury, Australia

Just returned from one of our best holidays ever. Was fantastic to experience the African Bush with it's great wildlife.
We needed a Double Cab Hilux with 2 rooftop tents, airport pickup at Windhoek (Namibia) and Drop off at Kasane in Botswana . We had several quotes about 6 months before the trip, but no one was prepared to provide info on the mileage and year model. Zebra promised one with less than 120 000 km on the clock and I decided to go with them.
The vehicle was about 4 years old, but well maintained with newish tyres. It could take 140l Diesel. Fitted with an extra battery for the fridge. 2nd spare was in the canopy, but with a bit of effort we could fit the luggage for the 4 of us in. Rooftop tents had some wear and tear within expectation for a rental.
The documentation to cross the border was well organised. GPS and Sat phone in order.
Everything went smoothly and we hope to do it again.

Learn to ski and wakeboard or take a thrilling tube ride for the little less adventurous we also offer a relaxing boat ride on the beautiful Benoni lake. We are located 15 min from the airport and offer shuttles services on request. Operate on appointment only

I am from the UK and was looking for somewhere to learn to waterski on my business trips to Johannesburg. I found skiworld on the internet and contacted Don, the owner. From the first time that I came until now he has always been extremely accommodating, going out of his way to fit me in around my somewhat hectic schedule. He picks me up from the airport and shuttles me back to the Gautrain so I do not even have to hire a car to get there. All of the staff are really friendly and are there to help you progress with excellent patient tuition and I have gone from struggling up on one ski to running the competition slalom course! The club itself is great and I have made a lot of new friends which makes my business trips much more sociable and pleasant. I brought a good friend along last Saturday who had only skied a couple of times and he was even entered into the club competition on two skis as there is a category for everyone! He also brought his son who had never skied and the skiworld instructor, Wessel, had him up behind the boat on his first session. Then we had a Braii cooked by Don. This is not just a place where you come to learn to ski it is also a community of like minded friendly people where you can have a great day out.

Silver Fox Tours - Day Tours

Guided tour of Constitution Hill, Newtown and Main Street, Johannesburg.The history of this city of gold.Includes refreshments, all entrance fees and lunch.

Reviewed By Judynic - Johannesburg, South Africa

There was no water at the venue nor were there any statues in the museum. The result was we could not have tea, the toilets were not working and our visit to the
Museum was very short. The guide then took us to the temple where he read, from a pamphlet we had all been given the titles and descriptions of the three principal statues.
There appears to be another temple behind,the one we visited but we were not offered a viewing. We were then taken to Bronkhorstspruit dam for lunch in a cafe. The food was very disappointing.
