After traveling for hundreds of kilometers, it was like arriving at an oasis when we arrived at Le Must! The beautiful, well established, well kept, lush garden was awesome. The hostess was playing her roll perfectly! We enjoyed and appreciated the tasteful and stylish interior, and every detail, that was there for our convenience! After staying at Le Must, we... More

We are a retired French couple from Canada (Montreal) and traveled South Africa during 2 months renting 31 different lodgings. This one was # 12. Superb house with gardens and view on the river.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us as much as you had anticipated. The room you stayed in is our budget room, thus the smallest of our 11 rooms, which you yourself booked through the internet.

Passing through or staying a few days in Upington, do yourself a favour and stop over at Le Must on the river.

We stayed one night at LeMust Residence in Upington on our way to Namibia. We had a warm welcome by Djerke and team. The rooms are very nice. We enjoyed the stunning garden with a beautful view on the river.

We had an enforced stopover in Upington to repair a smashed window after our Landcruiser being rudely burgled in Lamberts Bay. The amazing thing was we couldn't find a room anywhere in Upington.
