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.
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....see more
Good overnight stop-over
I cannot comment on Upington as we always use it as a stop-over. It is a growing town and as we do self-catering on our trips, we do our grocery shopping in Upington. We have been there before on a trip to Augrabies Falls. This last trip was to go to Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park where we stayed for 5 days before crossing into Namibia.
