Gemsbok Newspaper

The Northern Cape’s vastness and desolate splendour can be as emotionally evocative as other notable landscapes in South Africa. Moreover, its characteristic semi-arid climatic conditions and beautiful sparse vegetation have not stopped the creation of several successful and commercially important agricultural industries; Upington, for example, hosts the headquarters of numerous well-known companies operating in the livestock, dried fruit, table grape and wine sectors. Given the stunning and severe landscape, however, the region’s tourism and service industries also contribute significantly to the regional economy.

Upington is a crucial commercial hub in the province, and has become known as the retail centre for several surrounding areas; in fact, many residents of the Northern Cape travel to the town on a weekly or monthly basis to stock up on grocery supplies and other household items and appliances. In this regard, the Gemsbok is especially important as this market uses its high quality advertising inserts to draw up shopping lists. The ever-popular Gemsbok is a respected newspaper in the region, and is the newspaper of choice for residents in Upington and surrounds in search of accurate and reliable information.

The publication concentrates its reporting on local and community news, school news and notable achievements by pupils, police and local governance news, church and charitable organisation news, lifestyle news and more. As mentioned, the advertising sheets are also a valuable source of information regarding retail offerings and specials. The paper has a print order of 14 500 copies, and is distributed weekly on Wednesdays.
