When we flew to Kenya, it worked out well for us to fly via Johannesburg. We stopped off a few days earlier to visit my parents, brother and sister and then again on the way back. My parents moved last year to Douglasdale to a Retirement Lifestyle Village there and so it worked well for us to stay just down the road at Monte Casino’s Palazzo Hotel.

The girls absolutely loved the décor especially the Monte Casino “italian streets and alleyways”. We loved being able to just walk to the restaurants and activities of the complex. If you are staying just a few days in Johannesburg I would recommend the hotel for it’s location and excellent breakfast buffet!
