A surprising gem in Upington

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 08 May 2019
We only stayed the one night as we were doing a tour of the Kgalagadi the next day. What a surprising little gem Border Close Guesthouse proved to be. The image of the front of the property that I saw on the Internet when booking didn't leave me with high expectations. But as the car drove into a very nice neighbourhood I quickly changed my opinion. The front of the property is sort of hidden but once inside the gate it is quite delightful.The couple who run the property are a lovely young couple. The room was a bit of a tight fit but was so very well equipped and was so very comfortable. There is a small pool and a lovely outside seating area to relax in. We also ordered the very reasonably priced continental breakfast for two and there was enough for three to four people. I thoroughly recommend trying this place if visiting Upington.

We came in from Joburg at midnight, the owners were there to greet us upon arrival. The beds are good, as is the breakfast. A good stop on the road to Namibia / Fish River Canyon, which as our next destination
