One of the highlights of a trip to South Africa is getting the chance to see its finest natural beauty. There are fewer examples more powerful than that of the Augrabies Falls; the eponymous feature of its own National Park. Upington is the nearest large base for anyone travelling in the northwest region of South Africa; for that reason alone we highly recommend car hire in Upington. Inside the town's many museums, visitors can discover the national heritage and pride taken in Upington's development; there's even a statue of a donkey on display in tribute to the hard work of the animals who helped raise the community.
The Orange River flows through Upington, and has produced a variety of grape for which the region is famous. Due to the town's proximity to the unmissable Augrabies Falls National Park, many visitors will stop through here and have the chance to sample the rich fruits. Hire a car in Upington and you'll be able to drive on and visit the National Park. Inside the park the waterfall is a dominant feature; 60 metres above ground the warm waters cascade down making for a beautiful sight, while the local wildlife is attracted to the sweetness of the giant aloe. Car hire in Upington is all you need to be able to witness many different species of native animals in this beautiful setting.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
