EXPLORE Upington

Upington is a major city if the Northern Province of South Africa.

Upington has an arid, desert-like landscape yet is situated on the banks of the oasis that is the Orange River. This body of water hydrates the harsh climate with nurturing water from the Lesotho highlands. Founded in 1884, the town is rich in history and culture and serves as the gateway to several breathtakingly beautiful national parks as well as the Augrabies Falls. The district is best known for its export-quality grapes, raisins and wines - produced on the fertile flood plains of the river, despite its arid characteristic landscape.

The town is a relatively popular destination for getaways and is a great starting point from which to explore the northern parts of Southern Africa including Namibia, the Kalahari, Augrabies, the Fish River Canyon and of course, the Northern Cape. The Kalahari Orange Museum is an interesting place to visit as is the Orange River itself. Some of the popular activities that draw people to Upington are the hunting, boating, and fishing opportunities. 

Accommodation in Upington is some of the most hospitable in South Africa with a variety of quaint and beautiful guesthouses and bed and breakfasts to choose from. Upington accommodation also provides budget accommodation for backpackers and hotels that suit travellers from all walks of life.
