Kalahari – Upington and surrounds
About the Birding
Although the town itself is quite built up, birding the outskirts along the Orange River can be quite rewarding. There are a number of resorts on the banks of the river one could enter, or stay over in. The Eiland Holiday Resort is one such example, and is located just next to the main bridge in town.
About the Birding Site
Located on the banks of the mighty Orange River, the town of Upington is the major centre of the north-western region of the Northern Cape and is the gateway into southern Namibia and a number of key Kalahari birding destinations.
