Our stay at Villa Afrikana was out of this world.

We stayed in this hotel for two nights and wish we had stayed for more. This is a boutique hotel with six star plus service. You could not dream of better service or surroundings. Set overlooking an ever changing scene where the tides come and go over marshland, it is stunning

was it easy to go to the knysna town from here and vegetarian food was available
Villa Afrikana is located 1km from the waterfront area with its restaurant & shops, guests enjoy the gentle walk down the hill whilst a taxi is preferable coming back up from town. We serve breakfast and a light snack menu from 15:00 to 19:30 and do accommodate vegetarian choices. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further assistance and information. Kind regards Ross and Bianca

which are the best rooms
We stayed in the Noetzie Suite which was great. I think all the rooms have a view of the lagoon and have a balcony.
