Spent one night at the national park accommodation. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very hot this time of year. All rooms fortunately had air conditioning. Don't know why one needs to pay extra for conservation fees if you're staying over though . Good hikes. The...More

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 visited the Augrabies at the end of our holiday, after being in Kruger and the Kgalagadi. This park is wonderful for its gorgeous waterfall, water scenes and rock formations. We did see some animals (gemsbok, klipspringer, dassies etc) but it's all about the magnificent...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

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
