Stay at Saxon Hotel, Villas & Spa

The Saxon Hotel has a very interesting story to tell, initially home and hosted to many esteemed and honoured guests. It was once home to Nelson Mandela as he wrote his biography “The Long Walk to Freedom”. It is elegant, refined, and in our view the only place to stay in Johannesburg, with the most luxurious accommodation and finest culinary experiences. The Saxon prides itself on its great attention to detail. From the

quality of their food to the finer points of their warm hospitality, you can expect only the best. Voted the World’s Leading Boutique Hotel since 2001, the Saxon Hotel, with its impeccable quality and service, leaves a lasting impression on its guests.

Missy & Harry

Absolutely amazing holiday. Garonga is heaven! We did everything possible and our guide was brilliant and hilarious. I can definitely recommend True Travel for their excellent advice and professionalism – they clearly are very knowledgeable about where they send their clients and made sure we had a worry-free holiday that perfectly suited us. We were particular grateful for the collection off our flight and help onto our transfer in Johannesburg, which included a very nifty queue jump due to their reputation!

A very high standard of five-star properties, with top-notch service and a wide range of amenities and experiences ensuring an unforgettable stay.


These four to five-star accommodations offer the high level of service that our team look always look for, with a range of facilities on offer.


Four-star properties which offer enough amenities for a comfortable stay. We may offer these for a more price-competitive option, or in more remote areas which don't offer the most luxe hotels.


These properties won't necessarily offer all of the typical luxurious facilities, but will always provide memorable experiences, from camping out in the bush to climbing up to a treehouse.
