Take the road less travelled and explore the magnificent Northern Cape landscape with a visit to Augrabies Falls National Park. Prepare to be met by strikingly beautiful rock formations, a wide variety of flowers and animals, and the impressive Augrabies Falls on your off-the road adventure to this region.
While the falls are the center of attraction here, exploring the region will take you to many other attractions nearby like the unique Moon Rock, a vast “whaleback” dome with a moonlike surface. Enjoy a bird's-eye view of the park from the top of this dome that is a prominent landmark of the Augrabies Falls, spot the klipspringer or take in the different plant species in the region, which include the iconic quiver tree.
Did You Know?
The Khoi call the Augrabies Falls Aukoerabis, “the place of great noise”. You’ll know why when you hear it. Few sights are as awesome or a sound as deafening as water thundering down the 56-m Augrabies Waterfall when the Orange River is in full flood.
How to get there:
Augrabies Falls National Park is situated 120km west of Upington and 40km north-west of Kakamas on a tarred access route. There are national air links to Upington and a private airfield 5km from the park. Internal roads are gravelled.
One way you can do #WaterWiseTourism on your visit is by opting for a shower instead of a bath.
