Augrabies Falls National Park SANParks in Augrabies

The Khoi people called it "Aukoerebis", or place of Great Noise, as this powerful flow of water is unleashed from rocky surroundings characterised by the 18km abyss of the Orange River Gorge.

Quiver trees stand in stark silhouette against the African sky, silent sentinels in a strangely unique environment where only those that are able to adapt ultimately survive. The 55,383 hectares on both the northern and southern sides of the Orange River provide sanctuary to a diversity of species, from the very smallest succulents, birds and reptiles to springbok, gemsbok and giraffe.

Activities available include waterfall viewpoints, game viewing using own vehicle, night drives (bookable at the park), etc.

Other useful information at this rest camp:

- Pets are not allowed in a National Park

- Malaria prophylactics and mosquito repellents are a good precaution. Malaria has been historically recorded in the area but is not very prevalent. Please consult your chemist/doctor to alleviate any concerns.

- Bicycles, roller blades and skateboards are not allowed.

- You may enter the Park with motorcycles and are allowed to stay in the camping site.

- Remember to bring a hat, walking shoes, sun block, camera, binoculars and wildlife reference books.

- As outdoor lighting in camps is limited, a torch/headlamp is required when walking outside at night.

- Hikers on day and overnight trails must always carry sufficient water.

- Take cool or light clothing for summer and warm for winter – area prone to sudden weather changes.

PLEASE NOTE: the rates are subject to the number of adults and children staying. Quotes will include the 1% Community Levy, but will exclude daily conservation fees, which are to be paid directly to camp on arrival.

Reviews for Augrabies Falls National Park SANParks

"Return to my roots!"

The experience to return after 27 years was definitely worth the effort. The service of the park and those who run it is comparable to Niagara Falls. The only problem that I had was the convenience store who's unrealistic prices for everything even chased away foreigners, which I saw myself. This store should be placed under the direct supervision of the National Parks and not be outsourced. Otherwise a great time. Thanks.
