African Vineyard Boutique Hotel & SPA near Upington and Keimoes in the Northern Cape is located among lush vineyards on Kanoneiland, the largest inhabitant inland island in South Africa. African Vineyard is the perfect jewel to experience the Green Kalahari, Augrabies Falls, Kgalagadi and the flowers of the Northern Cape. Escape from the busy city life and reconnect with yourself on the island of slow living and slow food. We are on the N14 route to the Augrabies Falls, Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park and Namaqualand. African Vineyard combines magical ingredients to create an unforgettable experience - the ambience, food, spa treatments, personalized service and modern luxury accommodation combine to deliver country hospitality at its best. Guests are welcome to relax and revitalize at the wellness spa, enjoy the exquisite garden and rich birdlife on the walking trail, experience local food or just relax at the poolside. An art gallery with paintings from local artists is available.

African Vineyard is a lovely oasis in Kanoneiland, surrounded by vineyards. Set in beautiful gardens with lovely spacious suites, delicious dinner and breakfast. Unfortunately we got there later than expected and only had 1 night there but I can recommend staying longer if you can to explore the area and enjoy the hospitality and surroundings

Clean and refreshing place to stay, rooms are spacious and clean, customer service is friendly and always presented with a smile, you have to try the lamb neck while you there, cooked to perfection. Overall a great place to stay only downside is the Wi-Fi connection which is kind of slow. Other than that I'd 100% recommend it

The hotel has beautiful rooms with exquisite aesthetics. The bathrooms and rooms in general are spacious. Electric blanket made ice cold winter nights to be absolutely comfortable and super warm. Warm breakfast is tiny however it is delicious. Thank you for Muscadel, it really kept me warm. Hopefully the gate issue will be sorted soon. Otherwise the service was excellent. A big thank you to Bradley for a good work

We already wrote it, but staying in African Vineyard feels like a home far away from home. We love the luxury rooms with the good bedes and bathroom. The fact that this accomadation can be found as a green oasis in this desert area. And besides this all, they serve a delicious diner. We hope to come back again to this guesthouse with its wonderful owner and her staf.

We stayed over enroute to Pretoria from CT. A real oasis in the Northern Cape! Our suite was comfortable, spacious and luxurious with all ammenities and DSTV. Bathroom had a large shower and bath! Dinner was set outside our room and delicious! The perfect stay to re-energise for a long road ahead or even to get away for a weekend. Staff friendly and attentive. I can highly recommend a stay here.

We are influenced by tripadvisor reviews and rarely differ from the majority ratings We had a gorgeous room thanks to the delightful Elmarie, who wasn't expecting us due to our last-minutechange of date with booking.com which hadn't got to her. We will book direct in future Dinner and breakfast were fine, but just slightly under the overall 5 stars that African Vineyard so rightfully deserve. Such a beautiful venue for a Wedding or Conference too.
