  • It is a small but agreeable lodge, with a small swimming pool, situated in one of the few quarters, in Johannesburg, where it is possible to walk safely (Melville). There is plenty of restaurants bars and shops just around the corner. The staff is very kind and helpful.

  • We had a great three-night stay in Thulani Lodge, thanks in large part to Jason (a super spunky young guy) and the rest of the staff. We felt welcomed and at home the moment we arrived. Nice breakfast in the morning. Secure parking. Excellent location within Melville for walking to hipster restaurants. Be sure to book a tour of Soweto through them with Cecelia of Fankomo Travel and Tours. That was the highlight of our time in Jo'burg. Would not hesitate to stay here again!
