The rooms were very nice with air-conditioning and coffee-making facilities. There is a large clean pool, a very nice kitchen and a braai area. We would stay here again. The only problem we had is that the owner was not there, and none of the staff can speak English. It took us about three hours to check-in, after we had to drive to one of the villages to collect the key from the cleaning lady. They should get staff that can communicate with their guests!
Via Africa offered more then what we expected. It was clean and neat, a place to relax and just enjoy yourself. It's affordable and a must stay!
Stayed at Via Africa in Bilene for the first time at Easter 2011. Simple and nice complex close to the main centre of Bilene. Room was spacious and clean with good en-suite facilities. The swimming pool was of a high standard and cleaned daily to maintain this. Kitchen block was adequate with a spacious fridge to share. Set in lovely grounds that are well maintained.
