Despite being one of the smaller national parks and lacking the spectacular wildlife of many others, Augrabies always amazes me. The waterfall is always breathtaking, but venturing further afield on drives to the viewpoints or short hiking trail you can truly escape from civilization and experience the peace and quite of Africa. Augrabies is a perfect place for a 1-2... More

The falls was a stopover en route to Kgalagadi. We stopped especially to see the falls and were not disappointed. The camp site was not full so we were spoilt for choice. Nice and clean ablution facilities. Will definitely go back to do some of the hiking trails.

Don't get me wrong - the park itself is beautiful. We stayed for two days, and did morning and evening drives following different routes. Wildlife is scarce, but the flora and rock formations are stunning. My favorite thing was the band of rose Quartz and unakite crystals and pebbles we passed - like a dry riverbed inbetween the trees and... More

We camped at the Augrabies National Park for 4 days. The waterval is absolutely amazing! We had the most enjoyable game drives through the park. As the animal life is limited, one tend to be a lot more aware if the nature in general. The rock formations can only be described as spectacular. The visit was complete with an educational... More

Interesting but really hot. Clean and well run, it appears. Staff not exceptionally helpful, but we did not require much assistance.

We had one day and two nights which proved not to be long enough here. There is a lot more to the Park than just the falls. The accommodation was plesent, aircon good bed and reasonable kitchenette. There is a lot of units and they pretty close to each other so not exactly my preference as a place to stay,... More

When we visited the falls there was very little water in the river and the falls were more or less dripping instead of falling. Moreover the whole area is gated full of tourists, and you are harassed by a lot of flying insects. Not the most impressive place to visit in my opinion...

In my previous review of the food at the restaurant, I highlighted that the food at Kruger National Park was disgusting well here is an update. They have changed to franchise restaurants which is a vast improvement.
