Although the North Cape was experiencing a drought the falls were still flowing but not free flowing. Saw photographs of when these falls had been in flood in the past, near the reception area, which were spectacular but a bit scary. Had lunch at the Quiver Tree Restaurant, which a separate review has been done, which was fine.

I visited the Augrabies Falls while working for a while in Kimberley. It was a 5 hour drive to Upington where we stayed and a further hour to the park. I was definitely worth the journey, to see this majestic waterfall in this sometimes rather Barren area. The falls are seasonal, do take this into consideration when you plan your... More

Even after what has been quite a dry season for South Africa the Augrabies waterfalls national park still boasts a mystical aura about it. The falls are truly a spectacle to see with the jaw-dropping 18km long gorge. Just a few minutes drive from the viewpoints of the falls one is treated to a view like no other - Echo-corner.... More

I went to the park because I had a whole day in Upington before the night bus I was leaving on. It was something to do, and I like waterfalls. Although the falls were comparatively meager in the dry season, the terrain around them is most interesting. My driver suggested a game drive, which I was not too keen on... More

Visited the Park on the way to Gauteng. Reception was very friendly, helpful and informative. The lookout points are impressive and the falls even more! A drive though the park also revealed interesting sights like the Moon Rock, whilst antelope like the Klipspringers were highlights! DEFINATLY worth a visit!

The landscape of this park is amazing, we expected dry and boring with it being the dry season but we were pleasantly surprised and wished we could have stayed more than one night. We saw animals like gemsbok and other various antelope and small creatures. We stayed in the Gorge Cottage, what a view even without a huge amount of... More

A tour of the Water Zfalls us a must. We also too a drive over the marked out route around the Nation Oark, with some spectacular views and sighting of animals.

We were day visitors passing through and we recommend that one stays at least two days in the park to absorb this harsh barren undisturbed world bordering on a moon landscape in some places. When the river is not in flood there is nothing special about the waterfall but follow the beautiful laid out paths from where you have interesting... More

What a beautiful and untouched part of South Africa! Great national park with lovely chalets and a tree plenty campsite. Great hiking/walking trails. We had a superb night game drive with a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide.

The Augrabies Fall National Park is a peaceful and uncomplicated holiday destination. The landscape is semi-arid, the national park is full of surprises and the falls and rock formations are beautiful. As a family we could go for a hike and get on our bikes every day. Accommodation is simple but sufficient. All the rooms have aircon. The kitchen is... More
