We went there quickly was too warm and not much to do. I enjoyed the landscape and views. There were not a lot of animals to see either,maybe coz of the heat.

We stayed one night in a chalet at the Augrabies Falls National Park and will be back again. The chalet was well equipped, in good repair, clean and comfortable.

Have driven past the park so many times. This time we decided to stay overnight. Well worth the effort to do so. Really enjoyed the comfort and tranquility.

It's very different from the other parks in South Africa - the bird life is great, the scenery is fantastic, the hikes and walks excellent and the waterfall spectacular! It is a very well run and the upkeep is good - made one proud to be a South African.

This is a most beautiful site to view and experience in person. The roaring and thunder of the water demonstrates natures ultimate power.
