We stayed at Africanos for the last 3 nights of our African sojourn and what a way to do it! The room is spacious and luxurious. The outdoor shower was invigorating, day and night! There are copious amounts of hot water. The staff are eager to please and always greet you with a fabulous smile. The food is beautifully presented...

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 5 weeks ago

Stayed for two nights in absolute luxury. The bedroom was great but put into the shade by the bathroom which had a bath for two, a shower for four and excellent, discrete, outside shower. Breakfast and dinner A1, served by Gift and Siya both of whom were excellent, as was Banana with the cocktail shaker. Stay longer is our recommendation

We loved our stay at Africanos. The location close to Addo was very convenient and the accommodation was very comfortable with spacious bedroom and lovely bathroom. All the food we ate in the restaurant was delicious and well presented. And the staff were friendly and attentive. Altogether a great success and we wouldn't hesitate to return

Modern hotel, 15 minutes drive to main Addo entrance. Although it is not the nearest hotel to the park it's facilities are far superior to some of th older, quirky properties which are closer to the park. (Which I visited) The rooms are large and comfortable with amazing bathrooms, which feature both large baths and showers plus outside showers. It...

Needed a place to stay on our road trip covering game parks. Being unable to get into accommodation at Addo found this wonderful place to stay. The day was really hot arrived earlier than book in time but reception and greeting on arrival was superb.

Small number of high quality rooms arranged in pairs on a grassy parade with restaurant and bar in a central area. The rooms are large and well appointed with both an internal and external shower (a novelty but of little value). This arrangement encouraged you to use your room more so than the common facilities. The food and service in...

Dear sheriffade, Game Lodges in South Africa are packed with cultural experiences and the expected "African Experience", decor and design. Although our name suggests African, the name was only an inheritance from the first owner. They were Greek and named the property after the Greek translation for African, thus Africanos. The new owner decided to change the original decor and...

As the headline says - Africanos offers excellent sushi (especially on Thursdays when you get a 50% discount) very nice service and a stylish location. Clear recommendation from our side but a reservation is definitely needed.
