Africlassic Collection


This is a Latin name used to refer to the inhabitants of then-known northern Africa to the west of the Nile River, and in its widest sense referred to all lands south of the Mediterranean.
The noun classic describes something that is an outstanding example of a particular style, timeless quality and that has all the features and more, which you expect such a thing or situation to have.


The combination of the above says it all. Africlassic celebrate and pays tribute to the African Continent, it’s People & celebrate various attractions making each of the participating properties a fascinating destination.

Africlassic is a family-owned and run company, founded by the Van Sandwyk family in 2004. We develop and promote worthy hospitality properties under the “Africlassic Brand” in our favourite place in the world namely South Africa.

So, how did it all start? Our family had early beginnings in Harrismith, South Africa. Our family arrived in South Africa in the 1860’s settling in the beautiful town of Harrismith. The Van Sandwyk Family turned out to be real entrepreneurs from early days with involvement in the motor industry (General Motors 1920-1976), farming operations, filling stations, restaurants and eventually the hospitality industry. We have a passion for what we do and firmly believe in our country and the tourism opportunities offered.
