A pretty cottage, very convenient for the whole family; pretty deco in the room and a flavour of Europe in the main house. We appreciated the "chaufferette" for the cold nights in winter. We are very thankful to our hostess for her help and advices on both our stay in Upington and our trip to Kgalagadi.

We stopped here for night. The friendly and welcoming hostess is the places biggest asset coupled with the wonderful gardens. This must be an oasis in a hot summer. Breakfast was excellent and beautifully presented. Our hostess was interesting and interested. We loved the many cats and dogs. The place was full of charm. Well worth a visit.

Lovely one night stop over. The room was decorated in a very pretty manner. The only problem is that it is a bit cluttered and the air-conditioned is a vintage model making a lot of noise. The hostess was very friendly and helpful, the gardens beautiful, the breakfast lovely and we did not see any cats or dogs. Keep up...

If you think that details matter and a touch of class in a pretty wild area counts, this is the place for you. We fell in love with its lush garden and flamboyant environment – and it was winter! Jackie, the owner, is a lovely and welcoming person who made our staying really special. All bungalows have their own character...

The guest house is located in a decent location with lots of plants around creating quite a cool and calming environment. Also located reasonably close to the town and the nearby bistro. There's a small paddle pool and outdoor lounge area where you can relax and have a nespresso. There were 4 of us who stayed here and we stayed...

Going through my Trip Advisor review, I find yours which does make me feel very bad. Indeed. my staff and I pride ourselves in preparing the guest's bungalows and room with the best of care. This time, it seems that we failed (coffee machine incident) and I am extremely sorry for this. About the cats, yes I admit that we...

My wife and I travel extensively outside the U.S. and because we love their type of accommodations we primarily travel to Europe. We were skeptical when friends suggested that we take a trip to the Kalahari desert in the Northern Cape South Africa. The couple recommended A La Fugue Guesthouse in Upington as a starting point and we prepared ourselves to "rough-it"...

We stayed here on the 31st March 2012 and the accommodation cetainly did not live up the the expected rave reviews. It was not as bad as the "terrible" review suggested but certainly not wonderful. The rooms were very cramped and crowded, too many animals everywhere (and I am an animal-lover). Cat sprayed in the one bedroom and left an...

I spend 2 weeks in this place. It was beautiful about everything, eating, accomodation and Jacky is the best woman I have known. All is good, very clean, and supper ambiance in the garden in the summer kitchen. I can recommand this place without any hesitation. Maryline Rouland switzerland [--]
