We parked in the secure carpark and were met by the lovely Manageress Tracy who showed us the breakfast area, honesty bar and lounge together with the host of books and DVD's that were available to borrow. Our room had fantastic views being... More

My husband and I stayed one night at Villa Afrikana at the end of February, and wished our stay was longer. From the moment we arrived until the minute we drove away, we were treated as if we were their most special guests. The view is beautiful, the rooms are fabulous, the service is great and the food was lovely.... More

If you are looking for a place to stay in Knysna that is close to the lagoon, with magnificent views across to the Heads, welcoming staff and friendly, accommodating hosts, in a modern, clean and yet homely environment, then Villa Afrikana is the right place for you. We had a superb time, and will definitely be back.

I spent 4nights at this guesthouse and I can honestly say it was one, if not the best, I have ever stayed at. The welcome, the staff, the attention to detail, just everything was superb and no matter how hard I try I cannot find any criticism only the highest praise. From Ross and Bianca to Tracy and Lovemore thank... More

Perfection is absolute and everyone at Villa Afrikana is absolute perfection. The hospitality, quiet efficiency and conviviality of our hosts and their staff are par excellence. This was our third visit and we have already booked for next year.

We were warmly welcomed by Tracy who showed us around and then to our room , where there were 2 glasses of white wine and strawberries dipped in chocolate awaiting us on our balcony. We had the Spitzkpp Suite with the most wonderful views over Knysna to the Heads. Breakfast... More

Second time we have stayed at this glorious place perfect welcome again which made us feel so special. Nothing is too much trouble and we love the very high standards maintained at all times and the beautiful decor. Rain obscured the perfect views but soon dried up and the sun shone!!
