A lovely surprise! - It is years since I was last in Upington, and I was very pleasantly surprised at how clean and well managed it is. The roads were in relatively good repair, the streets clean, parks well maintained, and overall I was extremely impressed. It looks as if it would be worth a longer visit, and a nice place to live and bring up a family.

An eye-opener - Wow, what a positive experience our 3 days in Upington were on our way to and from the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. The town is the cleanest, most well kept and maintained we have seen in years. It has an atmosphere of pride about it and that things are working, and working well. We have travelled extensively around the country and Upington is definitely the best kept secret. The main roads into the town are also well maintained with picnic spots, where the litter is collected regularly. We stayed at Aqua Viva guesthouse which was efficient, well run, fresh and welcoming. Well done Upington. Oct 2014.

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.
