Paul and Marie were extremely helpful and the rooms were comfortable. Good garden and veranda to relax on. Excellent breakfasts and a swimming pool to use. We had no car but Paul drove us to restaurants which was very useful.

We stayed here while on a self-fly safari from Johannesburg to Namibia. The staff picked us up from Uppington Airport, helped us select a nice place for dinner, and gave us a very pleasant stay. The grounds are well kept.

About
Description
At AG Bain’s House tranquility meets timeless elegance. The moment you enter the guest house through the big double doors you are greeted by an unexpected sight of an indoor waterfall and fishpond. As the More guests book in, fish inquisitively pop up for greetings. Immediately you feel at home. Even more so, if your hostess shows you all the treasures to make you stay comfortable – the cozy lounge with the big fire place where you can sample our local wines, the verandah and the magical garden. The lounge leads onto an exquisite long verandah with a reed ceiling. Sipping you first cup of coffee on the verandah, you have a view over the lush garden with a black swimming pool and the Orange River valley where the fish eagles circle the skies. Only 1km from CBD AG Bain’s House offer you peace of mind with a secure parking area. Our location makes your visit to Upington one of comfort, peace and quiet. Airport transfers, tourist maps, traveler information are available from you hostess. Upington is strategically situated for visits to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, Augrabies Falls National Park and Witsand Nature Reserve. Other interests in Upington is the grave of Scotty Smith, our own Robin Hood, the steam train at the Railway station, the avenue of Palm trees on the Island, Kanon Island, an agriculture centre, sunset cruises on the river, and a wine tasting and buying experience at the Orange River Wine Cellars – the second largest in the world. This is also a land of contrasts with various scenic attractions and 4x4 trails for four-wheel drive enthusiast. Come and enjoy the clear starlit night skies which create a magical atmosphere not to be missed. Less
