I Have been in the Tourism Industry for nearly 25 years - having said so, while having our Guest house in Upington and renting it out, it was voted as the Nr 1 Small Hotel Internationally by AA/Rennies! I am a farmers wife and been into politics for 7 years, but now retired and love spoiling my guests at Kennedys Beach Villa!
Very Safe area - security excellent!
