There is not many that can equal co-owner, Mariëtte Norval, in hosting duties, providing lunch fit for kings. An international menu of Greek lamb chops and a Moroccan chicken dish with couscous was on the menu. She went out of her way to make sure our business lunch was a festive occasion that continued into the early evening.

The service received was very good. The rooms were clean, neat and more than adequate. The staff was very friendly and professional. Ideal for a business stay over. Booking was easy and effortless. Our needs in terms of sleeping arrangements were met without concerns.

The rooms have too much clutter, too many ornaments.
Bed need a soft head board
The table must be free of plates so it can double up as a work desk.
I stayed in room 6; most unpractical lounge; you cannot see the TV; unrelaxing area, too busy.
Aircon will be more welcoming

Beautiful room, kept clean and tidy.
Food was out of this world!
Owners of the guesthouse are very kind and loves to chat.

Willem, Mariëtte, thanks for an amazing stay. If I do business in the area I'll most definitely ring you up!

Thank you for a lovely stay and warm welcome. The rooms are lovely appointed with each its own theme. My room was spacious and cosy and stocked with all the amenities for a Bachelorette. Attention to detail and warm surrounds made this stay a pleasure. Breakfasts were sumptuous. Lovely place to stay for a few days on business.

I tried to make a booking but was given pathetic service from Willem Norval of Villa Afriq. On Friday the 16th of July I contacted him to make a booking via the internet , and followed up with a phone call to enquire if he had received the booking for the following Saturday night (24th of July). He said he would follow up and let me know. He didn't even bother. Then on Monday the 19th of July, I phoned him again reminding him of my intended booking, to which he replied "I will phone you back in an hour ". Well I am still waiting for that call.I thought to myself he obviously doesn't need my business. In the mean time I have booked at the Purple Gecko in Lydenburg who were very friendly and helpful, and assisted me straight away. I made and paid for the booking, and look forward to our stay there.

My wife and I were looking for a great place to stay, with color and character, on our way to KNP. After long research, we decided on Villa Afriq, run by Willem and Mariette, both wonderful, warm and hospitable people.

On the night we arrived, Willem greeted us and brought us a warm loaf of bread from Mozambique, where he was staying the night before. Nothing could have tasted better after the long drive from Jo'burg.

Breakfast in the morning was wonderful, and we both loved the spaciousness and decorations of Villa Afriq. We highly recommend it.

I and my wife enjoyed our stay. Our stay was actually like our second honeymoon. Management and staff of the Villa was so good and accommodative to us,we felt like we were at home at the Villa. We really promise to use it as our second home and recommend it to our friends and family. I hope the villa will always accommodate us like that on our second trip.
