The drive from Kruger to Johannesburg in the rain.
After wearing the same clothes for 5 days and sleeping on single beds, that were one step up from a cot, we checked into Protea O.R. Tambo near the Johannesburg airport.
A bit of room service indulgence...
This new hotel has some kind of an airplane theme. Cargo freight boxes in the doorway, oxygen masks hanging from the ceiling of the elevator, and miscellaneous airplane parts doubling as decor:
The toilet was in a room all on it's own, only barely larger than an actual airplane washroom. Another oxygen mask hanging from the bathroom wall rounded out the airplane theme. The shower and sink were located in the bedroom area. The design was a little too 'modern' for us.
The hotel was great, really comfortable, and the staff were courteous and friendly. The only thing we didn't like was that the shower was right next to the bed. That's weird, right?
