Upington is situated in South Africa's Northern Cape, a nearby centre for visitors who wish to take in the amazing Augrabies Falls National Park. With seemingly unusual landmarks such as the Camel and Rider statue and the Donkey Statue, these actually make a serious comment about Upington's early heritage and the place these animals had in shaping their history.
If you're in the area you simply must visit the waterfalls at Augrabies, as well as the nearby game reserve. As with most South African cities, hiring a car from Upington Airport represents the best way to navigate this vast and beautiful terrain. i
You'll notice that Upington is on the Orange River, which stimulates much of the area known as the Green Kalahari. The area was once a haven for pioneers and explorers like the infamous Scotty Smith, whose grave is a tourist attraction in the city. The Kalahari-Oranj Museum also holds a place in the city's heart; this is where you'll find the life-size sculpture of the donkey.
Upington Airport car rental allows you access to Spitskop Nature Reserve, where you'll find all sorts of spectacular South African wildlife. Rent a car from Upington Airport and make the must-see trip to Augrabies Falls National Park - these falls are amongst the most spectacular in the world, let alone the country.

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.
