The joys of living in Sandton, Johannesburg
Living and running the beautiful Tladi Lodge Hotel in Sandton, Johannesburg, sure has its joys, like afternoon thunderstorms. It will be a lovely, hot summer’s day for most of the day and then all of a sudden, the sky will close up with rain clouds, thunder will strike and it may even hail in certain places.
All of this could happen very quickly, and just as rapidly, the sky would clear and the sun will shine once more, just before it sets with the most beautiful views of colour stroked clouds.

We love living in Johannesburg. I guess it’s the mixture of cosmopolitan people, and the hustle and bustle, and when we return to Tladi Lodge Hotel in the centre of Sandton, we can relax and enjoy our garden. There are a few tranquil spots in the garden where we can forget about the daily life, listen to the birds or watch them feast at the bird feeder. When visiting our lodge, people often cannot believe that they are in the heart of Sandton.
Johannesburg and Sandton also feature many Jacaranda trees, which offer magnificent views. Although they are not indigenous and problematic to keep clean underneath, these trees create a purple carpet after a rain storm. It will then look as if a painter got hold of a bucket of purple paint and repainted the streets. It is just so beautiful.
Join us and experience the way tranquillity and luxury were meant to be experienced at Tladi Lodge Hotel.
