It was our 3rd trip to the Augrabies Falls, always nice to walk the walkway and admire the beautiful majestic falls.

We planned our roadtrip because of wanting to visit the falls and it most definitely didn;t dissappoint. When we arrived we thought we were in for a dry spell and then we started hearing the magic of roaring water. The walking paths are done beautifully...More

This is a gem in the arid region of South Africa. Very hot in Summer and very cold in Winter. We've experienced both extremes. The last visit was in Winter, much more pleasant. We also took a night drive. Our guide was Attie - a...More

We had an incredible day at the falls!! It was so awesome to be able to walk right up to the waterfalls. My parents are elderly (75 & 77) and they could easily get to the viewpoints. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

The Augrabies Falls national park is a natural water flow through the mountains of the falls. Go there and position yourself appropriately, you will hear the noise made by the water as it flows and hits against the big rocks, a good view as well,...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
