Welcome to the Gender Links (GL) Cottages. GL is a Southern African women’s rights organisation headquartered in Johannesburg, with offices in Zimbabwe, Mauritius, Madagascar, Lesotho, and Botswana. We offer visitors and guests a haven of peace and tranquillity in the midst of Johannesburg’s thriving metropolis. Set high on Observatory Ridge, where a number of national monuments are housed, the GL Cottages stand above the hustle and bustle of the city and provide guests the opportunity for reflection and renewal. GL acquired The Cottages, its adjoining White House, and 29 Gill Street as part of our sustainability and diversification strategy. The GL Cottages is a place of peace, productivity, and privacy. Each room is quiet, private, and uniquely designed. All the profits from this venture go into advancing women’s rights in Southern Africa. The GL Cottages is run and managed by a small group of dedicated people who seek to provide guests with comfort, time, and space to experience stillness, wholeness, and renewal.

GL Cottages is ideal for training workshops, conceptual and think tank meetings, strategic planning, board meetings and team building and wellness
