We've stayed at La Fugue several times now and will certainly go back again. Our host is very helpful and welcoming and we received plenty of excellent advice.
The guest house is located in a quiet area of Upington and is not difficult to find, especially if you're coming from the airport.
It's a real oasis in the middle of the arid Kalahari region : lovely gardens with plenty of birds, a nice little swimming pool to cool down in the heat of summer. The owner of the guest house is a lovely woman who loves animals and rescued several of them (cats and dogs).
The rooms are very well-decorated, with much taste, and they are all different. They are roomy and clean.
Delicious breakfast/brunch and dinner can be booked in advance. I highly recommend the breakfast by the pool.
The setting is lovely, safe and quiet.
