Upington is one of the fastest growing towns in the Kalahari Desert region and is a growth point in the Northern Cape province of South Africa. If you expect to see a dusty, dilapidated frontier town, when you visit Upington, you will be pleasantly surprised.

Upington is a vibrant town with many hidden charms, and, of course Upington is your gateway to Namibia, Botswana and the Kalahari Desert with its main attraction, the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, previously known as the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park.

Upington’s very dry and hot climate and the unlimited availability of water make the area ideal for the production of sun dried fruit, big variety of wines as well as export grapes of very high quality. We can grow maize, grain and lusern to very great success.

The very beautiful Kalahari landscape surrounding Upington is known worldwide for the Kalahari Springbuck and Gemsbuck, that make game farming and tourism one of the biggest economic activities of our region. The Kalahari is known for the production of high quality meat from our Dorper sheep, Cattle and Boerbok.

Areas such as Keimoes, Kakamas, Groblershoop, Kenhardt also falls under the “umbrella” of ERA UPINGTON.
