Beautiful area and worth a stop over. Travelling along the green Kalahari and stopping over to show my kids is absolutely worth it. The falls is approx. a one hour stop over unless you explore the park. Only negative is the attitude at the reception...More

Due to the lack of rain the size of the waterfall was a little bit dissapointing. Although beautiful environment, expensive national park for one day visit.

we are so glad we booked to stay inside the park as we arrived just before sunset and had to leave early for the Kgalagadi. There was still time to visit the falls and we were impressed by the extensive walkways to view this attraction...More

We undertook a day visit to this park during August 2018 and I was pleasantly surprised with its great scenery, well lain out camp and walkways and smooth drives. This park is well worth a visit and can't wait for a more extended stay! We...More

Augrabies not only offers a spectacular waterfall but nice hiking trails, where you might get lucky and see blooming flowers or even a klipspringer

We visited the Augrabies Falls in August and we were amazed at how warm the weather for a winter month. It is definitely worth visiting the falls, although please note they cannot be compared to the grandeur of Victoria Falls or Niagara Falls. It is...More

For reasons unknown we have never been to this park. We've been close on many occasions - especially when we lived in Namibia over thirty years ago. But we were always rushing, simply spending the night in Upington, never bothering to drive the 125k or...More

The road to the falls itself you will be fine as it is tarred. Even within the park you should be fine to drive the gravel roads, but do not attempt the 4x4 marked roads.

For day visitors it is 07:00-18:00. The falls are obviously the main attraction, but you can take a game drive on the marked paths which I always enjoy. There are a few walking routes if you want to walk but take water with... More

I travelled JBG - Mokala and then onto Augrabies and loved it. The only problem is that I don't think you've got long enough to enjoy Mokala. I stayed for three nights and then moved onto Augrabies for just two nights... More
