Our Story

Africlassic promises you an enjoyable, comfortable and memorable experience. We will make you feel at home, take care of you and truly create "Your Home in Africa".

Africlassic Guest House – Harrismith is nestled at the foothills of Platberg mountain in the scenic Drakensberg Highlands Area. Harrismith offers a serene environment with cool fresh mountain air and a weather system which can change anytime creating dramatic backdrop scenes of cloud and mountain. The house was build in the 1950’s by the Van Sandwyk Family and reflects a still timeless beauty and elegance. Decoration is pure, authentic African and cultural and natural elements have been merged in rhythmic harmony. The breathtaking scenery of Platberg mountain from the beautiful garden sets the scene for a truly remarkable experience. Our unique decorative theme celebrates the cultural excellence and diversity of our African Continent. Each guest suite is named after an African country and is decorated with authentic artefacts and cloth from each specific country. We trust that you will enjoy the ambience this creates as much as we do sourcing these items. You will certainly enjoy your stay with us.
