Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

Beautiful surroundings, spacious rooms, tasty dinners, friendly host, this is what you will find when staying at The African Vineyard, a must for all business men visiting Upington. A definite value for money when compared to the present rates being charged within the area. Added value in stocked bar fridge and laundry service.

The food was excellent and on par with what one expects to find in the city. I could go on but suffice it to say I was very pleased with my stay, and although short and sweet this time,...

Three course dinner not presented, just served. It started with main (a massive piece of lambs neck). No first course. Room infested with mosquitoes- dozens of it- and no insecticide. Which is...

Wonderful place to stay with great food and pleasant helpful staff. A perfect place to rest after time in the Kalahari. The new Spa facilities are great and the whole ambience of the place totally relaxing.

I have been to Upington in the past but not in recent years. It's grown and finding a guest house which is really a boutique hotel was a real surprise. The setting is wonderful with the rooms spread out over a collection of farm buildings. But don't think farm buildings, think more loft conversion. My room was huge - No...

This was conveniently half way our travels from Namibia and booked just one night. What a place, could have stayed longer for sure! Nice little pool. Good food. Friendly people. Great rooms. Peace and quiet! Amazing location only a short drive up a sandy path. Worth staying more as just an aftetnoon and night !

It has been our second visit to this fantastic place and it will definitely not be the last. What a pleasure to spend some time at this oasis of peace and quiet, surrounded by lush gardens. The rooms are to perfection, white crispy linens and each one different and beautifully decorated. Nothing has been too much for the entire staff....
