Description
Vergelegen Guest House and Restaurant, surrounded by lush green vineyards of local farmers, sits nestled in the Orange River valley; on the out skirts of Kakamas, Northern Cape. Vergelegen is en-route to various More popular destinations: Augrabies National Park, the Kalahari, Namibia, Richtersveld and the West Coast. The central location also provides the ideal home base for our local region; whether being on a business trip or coming as a tourist to enjoy the variety of attractions and activities, in and around Kakamas. The Guest house adds a personal and exclusive interior touch to their 25 air conditioned rooms. Two self catering units on the premises are available if that will meet your preferable requirements. In all the rooms, Vergelegen, provides linen, towels, complimentary amenities, coffee- and tea making station. Vergelegen as an establishment is a WiFi hotspot. The hotel bouquet DTSV cannels are excisable in all the rooms. A Buffet style breakfast can be enjoyed in the restaurant or on the patio around the pool. All the rooms are non-smoking, but easy access to the patio if required. The establishment is also pet friendly with if possible prior arrangement, therefore some rooms has tiny court yards to accommodate our animal friends. Vergelegen restaurant has a well established reputation for abundant and quality served dishes. A celebration of local and international mouth watering choices, with a touch of ownership and playfulness in the recipes, will make the meal a memorable experience. The small but well thought through wine list, offers choices of local Kakamas and South African wines, that according to the owner, pairs magnificently with the dishes on the menu. A coffee shop by day and cocktail lounge by night, the ambiance of the communal lounge, plays the part, of the time of day, you choose to relax and take a little time out. Breakfast, tea time snacks and light lunches are available from the coffee shop. At sun set the cocktails served can just be the introduction to a feel good beginning to the evening spent at Vergelegen. To name but a few must do, close to Vergelegen Guest House, worth visiting or experiencing will be: Augrabies Falls National Park, only a short drive away, a full day of sightseeing, 4x4 routes, walking trails and pre booked night drives. Riemvasmaak offers the famous hot springs or 4x4 routes. Vine yard and wine cellar tours to farms that are diverting from the better known export grape and raisin industry. A town that was started in the late 1800; offers a couple of really interesting historical sites to see and visit. Numerous 4x4 routes can keep you occupied and driving skills well tested. A gentle rafting experience on the Orange river is always time well spend. You can even be spoilt by the company of fish eagles, to name but a few of the birds along the banks. Tranquil spots along the Orange river provide some decent fishing adventures. The adrenalin junkies can challenge themselves with some extraordinary mountain bike trails.
