About Upington

Upington

Upington is a town founded in 1884 and located in the Northern Cape province of South Africa, on the banks of theOrange River. The town was named after Sir Thomas Upington, Attorney-General and then Prime Minister of theCape. It originated as a mission station established in 1875 and run by Reverend Schröder. The mission station now houses the town museum, known as the Kalahari Orange Museum. The museum is also the home of a donkeystatue, which recognises the enormous contribution that this animal made to the development of the region during the pioneering days of the 19th century.

The elevation of Upington is 2742 feet (835 metres). It is the closest large centre to the Augrabies Falls, arguably the greatest of South African waterfalls. The landscape is very arid but the soil is fertile and crops such as fruit are grown in irrigated fields. The area is best known for its export-quality grapes, raisins and wines, which are cultivated on the rich flood plains of the Orange river.

Wine Industry

Upington's most famous wines are produced by an organisation generally known as  Orange River Wine Cellars  (OWC). The organisation has six depots in the area (all of them on the banks of the Orange River) at Upington,KanoneilandGrootdrinkKakamasKeimoes and Groblershoop. The wines from OWC are exported, inter alia, to Europe and the USA.


Transportation

Upington has a modern airport with scheduled flights provided by SA Airlink (an affiliate of South African Airways).[4] The airport's runway, spanning 4900m,[5] is one of the longest in the world and the longest in Africa. Until the 1960s, the airport was also the site of the annual gliding world championships[citation needed].
In the first half of the 20th century there was a passenger train service from Cape Town to Upington. Until the 1950s a narrow-gauge railway line (two-foot gauge) ran from Upington to Kakamas and Keimoes, two nearby towns. The trains carried passengers and freight, being mainly dried fruit. The line to Kakamas was still in use during the November 2010 grape harvest season.
