Favourite country town - Clean friendly town - an obvious example to other country towns how an efficient Town Council can manage to maintain standards that rate payers expect. Residents and business owners share in the general awareness of the importance of good service which is reflected in their approach to the customers.

A town with lots to do - Really easy to find your way round. Excellent shops and variety of high quality restaurants.

Nice town - Spend a day in Upington to find "civilization" after the parks. We went to the Irish pub where the food was copious and good.

Upington - Nobody has anything great to say about the place which is mostly just a one night stop. I enjoyed being in a small town. I would have appreciated the barge trip if there hadn't been music; I would have preferred listening to the nature. But I'm old! The Aqua Viva said that they were going to give my comments to the barge people. Otherwise that barge trip is glorious and I got back to Aqua Viva on their quad. Yo yo! I ate twice in the Irish pub, O'Hagan's. The food was copious and hot but up there they adore a very sweet marinade which thoroughly masked the taste of the meat.

Upington the city - The city has grown since my last visit 10 years ago. The choices for accommodation appear to be endless which is great as well as the large outdoor retailers. My only disappointment is that I could not find anyone in the hospitality industry to recommend a nice place for tea or coffee or a local eating place that wasn't franchised.
