African Vineyard Guest House and Wellness Spa with 4 stars and an AA superior rating is one of those unique accommodation establishments that offer a great deal more than just an overnight stay.

As a working farm, it is part of the lush, fertile landscape of the Green Kalahari on Kanoneiland and is near Upington and Keimoes. As a registered Slow Food establishment, we proudly form part of Open Africa Kokerboom Food and Wine Route that runs along the Orange River in the Northern Cape, South Africa.

Situated on the largest inhabited inland island in South Africa, we are the ideally accommodation to experience the Green Kalahari and Northern Cape, the island of slow living - Kanoneiland and the legendary Augrabies Falls National Park. We are close to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park and are on the N14 route to the Namaqualand for the annual flower show.

African Vineyard combines magical ingredients to create a unique and unforgettable farm stay experience. The ambiance, slow food, fresh fruit and herbs, personalized service, country hospitality and luxury accommodation mix to revitalize your soul.

Guests are welcome to explore our vineyards, stroll along the Orange River or just relax in the swimming pool. Our exquisite garden is home to various species of bird and the eco-friendly dam is an island paradise for bird watching.

Latest Reviews

Our very quick one-night stay at African Vineyard Guest House was one of comfort and pleasure amidst the very tiring business trip activities.
Upon our arrival we were treated to a lovely, serene setting even though it was load shedding at the time.
We had the opportunity to go for a relaxing walk, our evening meal was a total treat and the company even better.
The cell-phone reception at the lodge is quite poor, and the wi-fi does not reach to all the rooms. This did not influence us too badly.
The Spa and the professional attitude during our scheduled treatments were amazing!
