About Aan't Kanaal B&B
Aan’t Kanaal B&B opened its doors in January 2005. Situated about 2km from the CBD of Upington it is bordered on the one side by an expansive park and an irrigation canal - hence its name, “Aan’t Kanaal”. On the other side the house and garden overlook the renowned vineyards of the Green Kalahari. Here the tranquil atmosphere is enhanced by an abundance of indigenous bird life. Families are welcome.
The four en suite bedrooms and separate self-catering unit are fitted with split-unit air-conditioners, a necessity for our hot summers and cold winter nights. During the cold winter months all beds are fitted with electrical blankets as well. One room can accommodate disabled people. All rooms have the commercial bouquet of DStv channels. Wireless internet is also available.
The large swimming pool offers cool and welcome relief during our hot summers. Children are welcome, but must be supervised at all times at the pool and in the garden. The expansive garden contributes to the relaxing surroundings and provides and environment attractive to bird life. Secure parking behind a remotely controlled gate is available on the premises.
