Geography and History

Upington is the pricipal Town of the Green Kalahari in the Northern Cape province of South Africa.  Upington is situated 820km north of Cape Town and 875km west of Johannesburg.  On the Kalahari-Namaqua-Namibia (Nama-kwari) route to and from Johannesburg and Cape Town, it is a convenient stopover for those travelling to the Augrabies Falls National Park, the Fish River Canyon and the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. The town of Upington is named after Sir Thomas Upington, the first Attorney General of the Cape.  Originally known as Kharahais, bound by the Orange River and the Kalahari desert, Upington owes its prosperity to agriculture and its irrigated lands along the Orange River. 

Upington is an ideal winter holiday destination with excellent facilities and beautiful countryside.  The contrasts of the semidesert reds with the emerald and olive greens of fertile vineyards are quite memorable!  Linked by air and road to most parts of the country, the town is accessible, offers excellent accommodation and has a well-developed commercial infrastructure.
