Accommodation rating: Good Standard
Set on a working vineyard just outside Upington in the Northern Cape, this guesthouse and spa is unusually situated in the middle of the Orange river. Cannon Island (Kanoneiland) is a vast richly fertile area of land where the river splits before coming together again to form the longest river in South Africa. The region is often referred to as the 'green Kalahari' and is the perfect place to enjoy country living and revitalise in the wellness spa. Spacious guestrooms, each individually decorated and named after a cultivar of grape, offer country comforts with cotton percale linen, armchairs and views of the gardens and vineyards beyond. Dinner can be requested, usually a six-course meal with wine pairings (bookings essential). African Vineyard is part of the Open Africa Kokerboom Food & Wine Route that runs along the Orange river from Upington to Riemvasmaak.
Features: 12 individually decorated rooms, private bathrooms, dining room, lock-up parking, swimming pool, indoor & outdoor spa.
Room amenities: Minibar, air conditioning, satellite television.
