In the Northern Cape province of South Africa, on the bank of the Orange River lies the small town of Upington. Olive wood trees are largely abundant in the area as it was named Olyfenhoudtsdrif in the past. The previous name means “Olive wood drift’. Now, it is named after Thomas Upington, the Attorney General and then Prime Minister of the Cape Colony.
Upington is the gateway to one of South Africa’s greatest waterfalls, the Augrabies Falls. The waterfall sits on the Orange River and is located within the Augrabies Falls National Park and is also to the wildlife preserve and conservation area named Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. Because of the town’s very fertile soil, crops and export quality products such as grapes, wines and raisins are cultivated and processed in the area.
A campervan hire is the perfect way to see the great places Upington links to. The town is the best way to get to the Namaqualand, an arid region in Namibia and South Africa that is best known for its flowering season during springtime. Here you will be able to see truly magnificent and colourful flowers like daisies all lined up in blooming fields.
Take your campervan for a spin in the entire Africa. Upington is a great place for a quiet and relaxed start and then make your way through the beauty, modernity and simplicity of South Africa. Visit other cities and towns such as Cape Town, Durban, East London, Johannesburg and many others for a truly satisfying African self-drive experience.
