Travel Tips for Upington

Kalahari Gateway

by Kanjoo

"Upington"

Upington i think is the largest city of northern cape, although kimberly is the capital but when i saw upington it seemed more commercial and important…as it is located on the bank of beautiful orange river and at the verge of kalahari desert that is why its other name is kharahais also… the name upington came from sir thomas upinton who was the first attorney general of the province… the weather of upington is hot and it looked very much like Rahim Yar Khan (my home town) not only climate but also the atmosphere.. but quite ironically upington is very clean than Rahim Yar Khan, but something which i have never experienced elsewhere in south africa but only in upington was hooters.. i mean vehicles pee peep all the time but when i entered the northern cape i had a short stopover in kimberly on my way to upington and it was very unimpressive experience.. something which I must mention for travelers, if they are traveling onward or toward to bloemfontein via kimberly they must use the common sense to take outside road bypassing the town, however it is also not marked but if entering the town than it wont be possible to get to the route without guidance becuz roads in kimberly are poorly marked… but roads in upington and infact everywhere else in northern cape are very well marked… anyway when i reached upington it was 17:30, my first stop was tourist info centre which was closed half hour ago.. but i soon found a backpacker accommodation without any problem, which was just across the bridge from city centre or i can say 5 mins walk.. unlike Bloemfontein, upington has got the natural water front on south africa’s most picturesque orange river but they do not have any extraordinary waterfront places like Bloem has on its artificial waterfront… the coffee shop on orange river next to tourist information office which was facing orange river was also closed and it was closed next morning also when i came to office for some information, and i believe they have got very nice view but aren’t using..

"upington tourist information"

the tourist information office building in upington, is renovated by an old church into information centre and museum.. its located on the bank of orange river and very easily accessible when one is entering from orange river side

"donkey statue"

that monument was symbolizing the irrigation history of the region also in the same tourist office courtyard
