We had a very impromptu stay with Liesel and co.
They couldn’t have been more accommodating. Wonderful service.

Very clean facilities with WiFi if needed.
Breakfast was yummy.

Thanks again for all your help in the last 24hrs.

Liesel welcomed us with a big smile and open arms after a long day on the road. She offered to set a table with plates and wine glasses for our cheese, wine and biscuits that we bought at the Checkers. She was extremely accommodating and nothing was too much effort.
After our own little picnic-dinner next to the pool and a stunning sunset, the beautiful, huge pool invited us to swim a few lengths before we jumped into comfy beds to get a good night’s rest before heading out early the next morning. We did not have breakfast there but one can enjoy a delicious plate for a very reasonable R85 pp.
Thank you Liesel for making us feel welcome. We enjoyed our stay!!

We stayed here on the way to Kgalagadi and back. Liesel is a very nice an super friendly host. The rooms are nice, clean and big enough to get your things sorted for the park. Breakfast is not huge but fine. Make sure you like dogs when coming! A clear recommendation.

Conveniently situated in Upington just off the main road. This hidden gem is a great place to stop off. Service is great, rooms are clean and well set out. Pool is great for those hot summer days in the Northern Cape. Worth a visit.

This review relates to the gift shop at Libby's, as we did not stay the night. We stopped by here after seeing it recommended in local advertising and we found a selection of interesting and unique souvenirs and gifts at good prices that will help us remember our trip to South Africa. We got a small carved giraffe and some original artwork of the Kalahari. Visitors should stop by.

As is often the case in Upington, unfortunately, you are initially confronted with a locked gate, but just ring the bell and assistance comes promptly.
