iThemba Lodge was an excellent place to stay for a single female visitor as it was very neat, conveniently furnished and private but safe. I had a happy stay in Johannesburg.

Friendly staff/ owner. Spacious comfortable rooms and beautiful garden. Good service. Very convenient place to stay if you are going to Victory Theatre to see Africa Umoja show (which I can highly recommend).
