What an incredible place to stay! My girlfriend and I were en route to the Kalahari Transfrontier Park and decided to stay at the Kalahari Lion's Rest for a night, and then head to the park the next morning (the drive from here to the Twee Rivieren Gate to the park is a quick 2:30 hours ). The room and bathroom were immaculately clean and styled in the fashion of traditional South African decor. The AC units and comfortable beds were a godsend after our many hours spent on the road. Henco and his wife Christal were incredible hosts to say the least, he waited up for us as we arrived later than expected after our mobile phone had died, and the following morning she cooked us an unbelievable breakfast as we gazed out at the incredible view of the surrounding vineyards. We felt safe, comfortable, and incredibly welcome throughout the duration of our stay. We even ended up staying another night for some well deserved R&R after our time in the bush at the national park. If you're searching for accommodation in Upington, look no further!
