About African Vineyard Guest House

Escape to African Vineyard Guest House/Hotel in Upington and the “island of slow living”, roughly halfway between the towns of Upington and Keimoes and experience country hospitality at its best. This beautiful, 4-star, AA superior guesthouse, set in tranquil gardens and surrounded by lush vineyards, offers visitors fine country hospitality in an area known as the Green Kalahari for its stark contrast to its desert surrounds.

African Vineyard is uniquely located on a working grape farm on Kanoneiland (“Cannon Island”) in the middle of the Orange River, South Africa’s longest river. Whether your wish is to go river rafting, game viewing, wine tasting, or on a scenic photographic safari, African Vineyard is an ideal stop over en route to some of South Africa’s most iconic destinations in the Northern Cape.

African Vineyard is also part of the Open Africa Kokerboom Food & Wine Route that runs along the Orange River from Upington to Riemvasmaak.

Visitors to African Vineyard can expect warm country hospitality and delicious country-style breakfasts featuring fresh fruit, herbs and farm produce (served outdoors next to the swimming pool or indoors in cooler weather).

Spacious, beautifully appointed rooms, from standard to luxury, open out onto the green oasis of a garden that is alive with birds. Dinners are served on request, as are six-course food-and-wine pairings (bookings essential).

The owner Elmarie knows that the key ingredient for a magical stay is a good night’s sleep. At African Vineyard, every effort has gone into ensuring that the rooms, each uniquely named after a cultivar of grape, offer luxury and comfort, from the cotton percale linen to comfortable armchairs and well-appointed tea and coffee service. Whether you check into the positively palatial Ruby Cabernet luxury suite or the standard Hanepoot room, all are equipped with minibars, air conditioning, DSTV, lock-up parking and a cool, comfortable retreat from the long road.
