What a lovely surprise! A piece of calm so close to the buzz of a big city. Marion and David absolutely went out of their way to accommodate us. The log cabin we stayed in is nicely equipped with all needed for a short visit. We did not see all the site has to offer, but if it is of the same standard as our cabin, you will not be disappointed. We will see you again in future.

We really enjoyed our stay ~ David and Marion made us feel right at home. This is the perfect guesthouse to stay at the start or finish of your trip in South Africa. Its proximity to the airport is unbeatable. But, if you want to get out and about in Jo'burg, I would recommend staying somewhere closer to the city. There's nothing within walking distance at Airport En Route, so unless you have a car or call for a taxi, you're confined to staying at the guesthouse. The grounds are beautiful and offer a quiet, relaxing stay.

Choosing accommodation via the internet can be a daunting task. Of all on offer I am pleased that I chose Airport en Route
I travelled alone & was warmly welcomed by Marion & David. It felt like I was visiting long lost family. These are two special people who go way beyond expectations to assist guests. The staff is very friendly & helpful too. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The accommodation was neat, tidy & very well priced. I will stay again and would recommend Airport en Route without hesitation.

Marion & David, thank you once again :-)

Stayed at the travel Lodge custom house for one night and what a terrible night is was. At 2.14am noise collection drivers picking up laundry wheeling metal carts up and down the front of the hotel. It lasted about 1 hour. Dreadful nights sleep. Breakfast I the morning was from 8am -10am. Went down to a buffet breakfast with powered scrambled egg. Warm coffee. People were still coming in for breakfast at 9.40am and there was no bacon left. Expensive at £99.00 per night and then a further £10.00 to park in the car park for 24 hours. Then to add insult to injury they charge £10.00 for breakfast none of which is included in the hotel cost. For 1 night £130.00. Would not be staying again.

My wife and I stayed here on the first night and last night of our 19 day camping trip through Kruger Park. The place is about 10km away from where we rented our campervan. (KEA campers). It is not dificult to find and is close to a shopping mall so you can stock up on stuff. David and Marrion were very gracious and accommodating hosts. We were able to drive in, park, plug in and have a cold beer on their lovely little farm property. We enjoyed the stay so much that we came back there for our last night rather than stay in Kruger Park. This allowed us to spend time cleaning the campervan. David even loaned us a vacuum cleaner! For a safe and convenient place to camp that is outside of the bussle of Johannesburg, this place is great! THere is a shower and kitchen and BBQ facility for your use and 3 dogs you can chase.

We did not stay in their guest houses but wjat we saw was very clean and neat.

We enjoyed our stay at Airport en Route campsite a lot.
We chose this place because after we picked up our camper in nearby Kempton Park, we didn't feel like driving a lot anymore and wanted to have a good night's rest before we headed to Kruger.
The camping is very neat, the ablutions spotless. There is a fully equipped self catering kitchen with everything you need.
There is also a tv room with books and just a place to sit at the end of the day with a cup of coffee when it's cold outside.
Marion and David are great hosts and they make you feel at home.
I would certainly recommend this place to anyone looking for a camping (or cabin) close to the airport.
Ideal for people renting campers from Kea/Britz/Maui - it's only a 10 minutes drive from the rental station to this camping. Especially on the day you bring back the camper, you want a place closeby so you're on time.
Don't look any further, this is the perfect place to stay.

My wife and I stayed at Airport En Route for a week in total during our stay in South Africa. It is run by Marion and her husband David and they were both extremely kind and went out of their way to help us. The rooms were very clean and quiet, and their estate is amazing. You can do a ton of bird watching just on their property, and they have their own collection of tortoises and some farm animals. Nearby is Bull Frog Lake, home to hundreds of flamingos and a pretty amazing place to visit. The breakfast was more than enough to eat and Marion always gave us a variety of food. I am someone who does not like staying in hotels, and Airport en route was that type home atmosphere that I enjoy staying it. I highly recommend you stay here and my wife and I will definitely stay here again next time we go to South Africa.

While on a Roadtrip we had to find a stopover on the East Rand to attend to business. Marion and David were top notch hosts. The ablution facilities are exceptionally clean and the kitchen offered more than expected. If you are looking for a quiet stopover I can highly recommend you pull in here

Airport au Route is one of the friendliest and cleanest camp and chalets site that I have ever had the pleasure in which to stay. I resided here for over 2 weeks while waiting for an aeroplane, using their superb kitchen facility and ultra clean washrooms. The grounds are immaculate with weeping willow trees as a backdrop. The site itself is set in what can only be referred to as countryside peaceful and quiet. I would recommend this site for one night or a long stay without any qualms.

Although our trip was short, coming to your lodge just made it sweet. My husband and i really enjoyed our stay. Marion was a great host and made us feel extremely welcome.
One of our highlights was definitely playing with their dog Roxy!!!
Rooms were clean and equipped with everything we needed.

You guys need to go there to experience it.

Thank you, we will be sure to return soon!
