I have the opportunity of going to JNB for a few days next month. What is JNB like for spotting - NOT PHOTOGRAPHY - without a car? I have heard that there's a convenient airport hotel - what's it called?

I stayed at the Airport Sun Intercontinental for a night. The rooms are quite nice and at the top is a CLOSED viewing deck with a gym and heated pool.
The pool overlooks the international terminal and you can hear the heavies starting up. You can also watch the departures and arrivals on runway 03L.
It was a great experience
