I was in Johannesburg last week for my USA visa interview and Mandela Washington Fellowship 2017 Pre-Departure Orientation South Africa – yes you read right, I have been selected as one of 1000 Africans that will participate in the Mandela Washington Fellowship in 2017 (for more on this prestigious fellowship visit my personal webpage HERE ). Whilst I was in Johannesburg for the MWF PDO we were set up at the 4* star HOTEL PARK INN by RADISSON which is situated in the heart of Sandton.
Sandton is known as “Africa’s richest square mile“. It is a prosperous area to the north of Johannesburg and is South Africa’s premier financial district. Park Inn by Radisson is an upmarket hotel well suited for both leisure and business travellers. It is part of a global brand which has more than 140 hotels across Europe, the Middle East, Africa (EMEA) and North America. My room interior was creative, artful and innovative and I can see why it is the recipient of the “Best Design Hotel” award from the South African Property Owners Association (SAPOA). It is situated only 20 min from O.R. Tambo International Airport via the Gautrain. The Gautrain also connects Sandton to the lively Soweto and Pretoria districts.
Here are my favourite highlights from my stay at the Park Inn by Radisson:
