About Kanoneiland

Kanoneiland (or “Cannon Island”) is the largest island in the Orange River and the largest inhabited island in South Africa. It is 14km long and 3km at it widest point, covering an area of 2553 hectares where the fertile alluvial soil and ready waters of the river are used for the cultivation of sultana grapes, lucerne, pecan nuts and even cotton.

The island was once a stronghold of the nomadic Koranna tribe led by Klaas Pofadder who used the thick cover of the indigenous bush as a hide out, from whence they conducted cattle and sheep rustling sorties on horse back in the surrounding areas.

From 1868 (the Second Northern Frontier War) many skirmishes took place between the colonial forces and the island renegades, coming to a head in 1879.

The story goes that in 1879, the Cape Artillery Corps had driven the Korannas back to the island, which they proceeded to bombard with cannon fire. Not to be outdone, Pofadder fashioned a homemade cannon out of the trunk of a large quiver tree, loaded it with gunpowder and pieces of stones and scrap and fired it across the stream. When the smoke cleared, six of his men lay dead, killed by their own gun. The cannon used by the Cape Field Artillery can still be seen in front of the old school building in the town.

The cultivation of Kanoneiland dates back to 1928, when 52 settler families started to clear the land for farming. Initially, they relied on a raft to cross the stream to the mainland. Over time, this was replaced with a regular ferry service. In 1940, the island was connected to the southern bank of the river with a single lane bridge. In 1954, a second bridge to the northern bank was completed, finally connecting the island to both sides of the river.

Today, around 1 374 hectares of this rich land is intensively cultivated, with virtually every available inch of soil under irrigation.

Upington

Upington is a town founded in 1873 and located in the Northern Cape province of South Africa, on the banks of the Orange River. The town was originally called Olijvenhoutsdrift ('Olive wood drift'), due to the abundance of olive wood trees in the area, but later renamed after Sir Thomas Upington, Attorney-General and then Prime Minister of the Cape. It originated as a mission station established in 1871 and run by Reverend Christiaan Schröder. The mission station now houses the town museum, known as the Kalahari Orange Museum. The museum is also the home of a donkey statue, 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 2,742 feet (835 metres). It is the closest large centre to the Augrabies Falls (arguably the greatest of South African waterfalls) and the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. 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.

The Upington 26

On 13 November 1985, a black policeman was killed following a disturbance at a political meeting in Paballelo, a black township on the outskirts of Upington. Twenty-six people were charged with the killing, of whom twenty-five were convicted of murder on the basis of common purpose, and one convicted of attempted murder. Fourteen were sentenced to death, although the death sentences were later overturned on appeal. In 2011, a memorial in honour of the Upington 26 was unveiled in Upington by Hazel Jenkins, the Premier of the Northern Cape. In 2014, the Australian film A Common Purpose was made about the case.

Wine industry

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

Transportation

Upington Airport has scheduled flights provided by SA Airlink (an affiliate of South African Airways).  One of the airport's runways is 4,900 m in length, the unusually long runway allowed Boeing 747 aircraft to use the airport for refuelling stops on long-haul flights.

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.
Shopping

Shopping in Upington is characterised by High Street shopping, with most stores located along Scott, Schroder, Nelson Mandela and Mark Streets. Upington has a mall, which is the area's first super-regional mall. The Kalahari mall is anchored by GameCheckersSparWoolworthsTiger Wheel & Tyre and clothing stores, banks and restaurants. It is located on the corner of Van Riebeeck and Malherbe Streets.

Geography and climate

Upington is located on the northern banks of the Orange River and is surrounded by irrigated vineyards. The hottest month of the year is January, with average daily temperatures swinging from 36 °C (97 °F) to 20 °C (68 °F), while in the coolest month of July temperatures range between 21 °C (70 °F) and 4 °C (39 °F). Also the driest month of the year, July sees an average rainfall of only 2 millimetres (0.079 in), while the wettest month of March sees 37 millimetres (1.5 in). Upington has been noted as being the sunniest location on the planet for three months of the year, from November through January.

Upington has a hot desert climate (BWh) with long, hot summers and short, mild winters. Precipitation peaks during late summertime.
