When you think of Johannesburg, you think of tall buildings, loads of shopping centres and women in 4x4s who only use them to park on pavements. However, if you drive slightly out of this fascinating city, into the cradle of humankind, you are greeted by rolling landscapes filled with the wonders of nature.
5 courses, demolished in one sitting. It was one of the most exciting breakfast experiences I’ve had, and I would definitely recommend you try out Roots restaurant, at least once in your life for a special occasion.
While we were at Form Homini, they took us on a tour of their rooms as well. Huge plush beds, bath tubs in the middle of the room, showers big enough for elephants, fireplaces for cold winters and beautiful natural surroundings. A 5 star hotel, close enough to Johannesburg for a romantic weekend away with gourmet food, and plenty to do in the area.
