The 26-suite property consistently gets top honors as one of the world's leading boutique hotels. Throughout the property you'll see pictures of celebrity guests, such as Oprah, who have also enjoyed the Saxton's fantastic spa.
The Westcliff is in the northwestern suburbs of Jo'Berg and is a favorite landmark because the pink luxury hotel is built up a winding hillside overlooking the city. Make sure you get a room with a view, and stop at the Polo Lounge to toast your stay in Johannesburg.
What to Do:
For a true feeling for all that South Africa has been through, schedule a stop at the award winning Apartheid Museum. Plan to spend at least three hours touring this impressive facility. This museum will tug at your conscience and your heart. The Hector Pieterson Museum in Soweto also gives you a glimpse into South Africa's troubled history. While you're in Soweto, the largest township in South Africa, consider signing up for a private tour so you can see where Nelson Mandela once lived and visit other historic sites. Another interesting trip is to the Cradle of Humankind, a World Heritage Site, where it's said the remains of humans living more than two million years ago have been found.
