Experiene luxury accommodation and tranquillity on a table grape and rose farm on the banks of the mighty Orange River in a place you will want to call home.
In the area Kanoneiland lies the Rekopane Estates, where they grow superb table grapes that are exported all over the world. Here, too, you will find glorious roses which are cultivated in a controlled environment. Their country cousins, which grow in the open, are to be seen everywhere, but those at Rekopane are hand-reared aristocrats, blazing gorgeous. Theres also a magnificent herb garden, the produce of which is used, along with the roses, in the making of posies for the ladies. Surine Bezuidenhout, who is justifiably proud of the miracle she and her husband have wrought at Rekopane, has the serene quality one gets only after walking through fire. From her guest-house - on the banks of the river, of course - on looks onto an utterly romantic scene of Africa, softened by intensely lush foliage. Here is a place to gather one self and shed the layers of care that build up in ones life.
