Hertz Upington Airport Car Hire

Hertz Upington Airport Car Hire is located in the Northern Cape of South Africa.  Many visitors fly in from Cape Town or Johannesburg collect their pre-booked car hire, and continue their travels.  Arguable Falls National Park, and Kalahari National Park are attractive destinations. This is also a great starting point for self drive touring north into Namibia or perhaps Botswana and the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park

Upington boasts one of the longest airport runways in Africa.
When South African Airways was refused the right to fly over Africa, a new flight plan had to be drawn up to fly around Africa.  This required greater fuel loads to fly “around the bulge” as it was then know.  South African Airways flew from Johannesburg with a full load of passengers and cargo. Refuelled the aircraft tanks to the maximum, at Upington, for the long non stop flight to Europe.   With these maximum loads of the Boeing 747SP required a 5 km runway to lift off.  Hence the runway is one of the longest in the Africa at just under 5 kilometres.

In 1886 George Harrison found Gold on a farm called Langlaagte.  Johannesburg sprung up as a small town on the Gold Reef.  Mining commenced and gold laden rock extracted.  To separate the gold from the rock it was first crushed.  Gold extraction was far from perfect.   Large amounts of Gold remained in the ore and mine dumps grew as the waste piled up.

These momentously large dumps found another use as the filling to level the streets and paving of Johannesburg.   As a result the streets of Johannesburg still contain large amounts of gold.

 “The streets of Johannesburg are paved in gold”
