The room was very neat and beautiful. The breakfast served in bed was the highlight of my stay. There is also a private outside shower which is also awesome.. The bed was nice and big just not comfortable. We had a very warm welcome.

Stayed here as the price and location was right. Nice looking accomodation, quirky for sure with an outdoor shower (can be a bit chilly but try it for sure!). Corner bath and toilet in the room (not sure about the openness of it, nice idea, but, if you are smelly the room will....). What suprised me was the noise levels....

As our car entered the driveway of African Silhouette, I was immediately blown away by the beauty of the place and its surrounding. As if that wasn't enticing enough, I walked into my room and was utterly stunned that it had its own outdoor shower area. It was still winter but the landscaping in the shower area and the surrounding...

We stayed with Susan at the African Silhouette during a recent "catching up with family" holiday. Nothing was too much trouble or too difficult to accommodate for our host. We found the rooms absolutely charming, the outdoor shower being a super feature, showering in the sunshine in the morning was quite delightful. Susan's breakfasts were authentic and gave us a...

I felt so sad when my two weeks at African Silhouette came to an end... but I'm looking forward to my next stay! I had everything I needed and more... Far enough from the hustle of the city to really relax, but close enough to pop into town! Susan really felt like family after my stay, and I will not...

We had the privilege of staying at this Guesthouse, whilst in Benoni for a family event. Staying true to their slogan "a little piece of heaven", this stunning guesthouse boasts a tranquil stay, on the outskirts of town.

A one night stay over in a clean, comfortable and refreshing guesthouse, close to a nearby function. A tranquil farm environment, so don't be surprised to hear the chickens clucking outside! Susan adds the personal touch right from the enquiry stage.
