80 photo1Situated in Pretoria, the capital and known as the Jacaranda City of South Africa, the Johann Rissik Guest House is located approximately 3 kilometres from the City Centre.

It is within walking distance of the Union Buildings, Loftus Versveld (a world-renowned rugby field) and various embassies. The IPA house is a mere 30 minute drive away from the Oliver Tambo International Airport and City of Johannesburg.

The legacy of the past directly links the Johann Rissik IPA House (built in 1924) to the history of Johannesburg, the biggest city in South Africa, as the House is named after Mr Johann Rissik, one of two persons after whom the City of Johannesburg was named.

The facility has been in operation as an IPA House since 1989.

There are 9 rooms accommodating 18 people, a lounge with a TV, as well as a fully equipped kitchen for use by guests.

A bar facility that is open 7 days a week is available for guests.

The IPA House Johann Rissik has a communal BBQ/Braai area with a lapa. The personnel living on site is always around to assist guests.
