We traveled the garden route and stayed overnight in Villa Afrikana. We wish we could have stayed longer; as soon as we arrived to Villa Afrikana and were welcomed by Ross his italian owner we knew we have chosen the right place. He and his wife explained to us everything about the region and the things we could do in... More

A beautiful uplifting feel to when you enter this modern and gracious guest house. Perched on the lofty side of Knysna we were truly impressed with these lodgings. We highly recommend it. The owners couldn't do enough for us, and most impressive was the amazing breakfast. I would go there again in a heart beat.

Really nice property in a good location; Very nice owners and helpful staff; great stay in Knysna. Large rooms and trendy decoration overlooking the bay, particularly at breakfast. Check address as not obvious on SatNav.

When we first booked our trip to South Africa our travel agent had recommended another venue that didn't appeal to us. After doing some research, and I was quite determined to find the right accommodation, we settled on Villa Africana. What a wonderful decision! I can't add much more to the fabulous reviews already posted. This is superb accommodation where... More

We couldn't say more about Villa Afrikana. Our suite was beautiful and the view unimaginable. The staff was incredibly helpful and the owners went above and beyond. We absolutely loved our time on the Garden Route and couldn't imagine a better place to stay on our honeymoon. From the petals on our bed upon arrival, the champagne given to us... More

Villa Africana is really nice, fabulous location overlooking the bay, lovely suite and a great breakfast. In fact it is difficult to find fault with anything. Possibly the staff are a little too anxious to serve and at times we felt they hadn't quite got the 'unnoticeable but present' trick some do achieve. However, their efforts were appreciated.

Nice hotel with a very friendly and helpful staff. Great location with a view to Knysna harbour. Big rooms, some of them with balcony. Nice breakfast vwhich you can get it served on your balcony. Big luxury bathroom.

I recently had the fortune of being able to spend a couple of days at the lovely guest house, Villa Afrikana. The property is a beautifully and tastefully decorated modern style with clean lines and remarkable home like atmosphere. The owners, Ross and Bianca are the real success, overseeing every detail of the operation daily to insure no comfort is... More
