Upington is the gateway to one of South Africa’s most beautiful regions: the Green Kalahari of the Northern Cape. Surrounded by harsh desert, this little oasis bears a striking contrast to the arid landscapes, with fertile river banks, lush gardens, and an abundance of wine and fruit estates. The city centre is bustling with coffee shops, museums, monuments, and interesting shops, with lots of accommodation choices on offer.

Highlights to visit here include the Mission and Parsonage buildings, Arabesque Coffee Shop, Kalahari-Oranje Museum, Orange River Wine Cellars, Date Palm Avenue, The Mill country shop, and the Desert Palace complex. Augrabies Falls National Park, the Orange River, and the rest of the Green Kalahari can also easily be explored on a self-drive adventure.
