        Stayed here overnight after arriving at JNB very late, as were to be picked up early the following morning by Limcroma Safaris. Annelise and her staff were all very friendly. Despite the airport noise, we were able to get a good night's sleep, and had...More

        My group of friends and I stayed at the Afton Guest House before flying out on a safari. Annelise is wonderful to deal with and the place is very nice, comfortable and the food is fantastic. I highly recommend this for traveling through Johannesburg.

        I cannot say enough about how great Afton Guest House was for our trip. Annelise helped us obtain our rifle permits for South Africa and staff met us at the airport to make sure that everything went smoothly getting our guns into the country. We...More

        I'm considering staying overnight in Johannesburg in May prior to my hunting trip start. Since my package is based on a specified number of nights, I need to know the cost of an overnight stay at Afton house to maximize my hunting time on station. That rate information eludes me. What's included in the overnight stay? Is the weapons service available at the airport separately or in conjunction with a stay? I've found another "red tape cutting service" for firearms. Need to know if I need both. Thanks for any help you can provide. Drafting my budget and I just need to have some idea. Captain Landers, USN, Ret.
