About Africlassic Rivonia

Africlassic Rivonia occupies a unique, secluded and private position on the Braamfontein Spruit in Sandton, Johannesburg.

Each of the rooms’ décor pays tribute to an African country and its people. The tribute to the African continent doesn’t stop there, with the POIKIE Restaurant Patio, the Taste of Morocco Bedouin Tent and the Zanzibar beach area providing an authentic feel of each country.

What truly makes this hotel special is that each of the rooms represents a different African country, each telling its own story with its authentic decor and design. The artefacts inside each room also reflect a deep love for the African continent and all its inhabitants, making it a fascinating destination.

This luxury property also boasts magnificent experiences for its guests, including views of the river, allowing for mesmerizing sunsets and making it the perfect place to have family dinners or romantic dates. The sound of the flowing river with its forest green backdrop and rich colours of bygone silver lanterns, sandstone columns, wood, brass, gold and khaki set the scene for a truly unique spot.

Africlassic – “Your Home in Africa”.

A place where you can live, laugh and relax. It's somewhere where you are welcome, loved, respected and cared for. It's a place that you are looking forward to go to….

                      I found Africlassic River Lodge on the internet and that always has a risk that the accommodation may not live up to the way it appears. Africlassic however, far exceeded all expectations. The staff have the professional qualities of being friendly, personal and attentive. The location is fantastic, and the photos of the lawn down to the river at the rear of the property don't do it justice. We always felt safe and were given suggestions on where to eat, shop and tour. The rooms are large and comfortable, and the decor throughout is fantastic. Lovely hot showers and clean linen. Nothing...

                      We had a lovely stay here. Anyone looking for an African experience in the city, this is the place to stay. The staff are very friendly, and went out of the way to make us feel welcome. The room, or should I say, apartment, was large and spacious, and the African decor is absolutely stunning. We felt very welcome, and we will be back!!

                      If ever you have to travel to the busy Joburg, but want peace and quietness after a hectic day - you can surely go to Africlassic and find it there. The beautiful river and garden will set the mood for you to relax. Were from Barberton and is so use to the laid-back live in the Lowveld, that we actually forgot that we were in the busy Johannesburg. Relaxing in the lounge with a cup of tea was our little ones favourite part of the day.Thanks for spoiling our little one with her own unique bed in the room. Special thanks to Mya for her friendliness - and keeping our room so clean. Will definite...
