About

Africlassic River Lodge in Rivonia nestles on the banks of the Braamfontein Spruit.  The sight and sound of running water adds a sense of serenity to this relaxed, upmarket lodge.  It's theme is pure, authentic African and the décor is clean, uncluttered and contemporary.  There's a kind of ancient, natural rhythm to it all.  Great care has been taken with the natural elements - and the results are quite dramatic - especially from the patio and dining room.

They promise their discerning guests the Africlassic Culturality® Experience - a hospitality experience so good, they thought they'd register it! 

Each of the 17 guest suites is named after an African country - and decorated with authentic artifacts and cloth from its namesake.  Each is equipped with a double bed, bar fridge, mini-kitchenette with cutlery, crockery and a microwave.  A freshly-prepared breakfast is available each morning and is served in the intimate "Amazing Africa" dining room - where the fresh air and the soothing sounds of running water will refresh you; all set and ready for the busiest day ahead.

It's all-out Africa - with all the warmth and hospitality you could wish for.
