2 Mokolo
Ranked #7 of 81 Sandton B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 November 2017

I needed a place near Johannesburg, after arriving from the U.S. in the early morning, to relax and prepare for a birding/safari trip. My only regret is that I didn't stay longer at 2 Mokolo! This is a beautiful guesthouse, with an amazing bathroom (outdoor shower!), lovely gardens and absolutely delicious breakfasts. Sandy is a most gracious and generous host. She took me birdwatching in the neighborhood park! I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to say here and hope to return. This place is a wonderful find!!!

Reading your review leaves us feeling elated. We simply love having birders stay at 2 Mokolo. (Accommodating visitors in just your position is after all why we started 2 Mokolo.) Many thanks for your kind words. We hope that you went on to have a fabulous birding safari after catching your breath here, and that someday you will return, and get to stay a little longer.

We have only two words to say in response to your charming review of 2 Mokolo: Thank You. We always look forward to your visits to South Africa. And we are thrilled that you helped us develop ‘ostrich sausage scrambled eggs’, as a novel breakfast alternative. In fact, we should introduce our other guests to this dish (yum). See you next year…

Mokolo - Sandy and Graham - is great. Love the place. It is a home away from home in a very quiet neighbourhood. Couple of nice options to run on quiet roads as well. They have added soo many personal touches and it is great. The food is fabulous. Rooms are magnificent.

Many thanks for finding us and for making 2 Mokolo your ‘home away from home’. We are thrilled by your feedback, as we strive to always provide a peaceful respite from the craziness of ever booming Sandton. (We now count 14 cranes on the skyline.) We are equally thrilled to have delivered on the critical aspects of a guesthouse stay. We wish you all the very best until next year…

2 Mokolo is A home away from home, Sandy, Graham and their staff are the most amazing hosts you can ever come across. They are so welcoming to a point where you never miss home. Service is excellent I especially loved their eclectic collection of furniture, amazing place.
