Fodor's Expert Review Vergelegen Guesthouse

Kakamas, Northern Cape, South Africa

This well-placed guesthouse for travelers on the road from Upington to Riemvasmaak Hot Springs also has a good restaurant, curio shop, and cocktail lounge (and even swings for kids in the garden). Comfortable rooms are all en suite, and the family rooms have separate entrances. It's a good choice if you have pets, since some rooms allow dogs. It's also en route to the Richtersveld, Namibia, and Namaqualand. The chef can prepare meals outside on the patio (summers are hot) or by the fireplace (winters are cold), or you may enjoy intimate dining at the restaurant.
