A great place to visit. I would highly recommend add this destination to your trip. It will take you an hour to an hour and a half to view to falls and you won't need much more time than that.

The falls are surrounded by excellent timber walkways and viewing platforms, so it is easy to get around and view different aspects. I'm generally underwhelmed by waterfalls, but this one is worth spending a good hour, if it is on your itinerary. There's a large...More

We had the most amazing night at the falls at the Gorge Cottage, 10km away from the main camp. The views are spectacular and the cottage is spacious and tastefully decorated. Being alone in the park is special. I can only recommend to stay there....More

The falls are good although it was low season. The landscape in the park and the gorges are breathtaking. It was worth the visit.

We came here for a visit to the falls, not knowing what else to expect. But there is a lot more to see and do. Unfortunately, due to the high temps we didn't feel like doing one of the hikes. The info on the park...More

These dramatic falls are a must see! When in the vicinity, take the turn off and go visit. Ensure that you are familiar with the opening and closing times. You need about one to two hours. A curio shop sells lovely gifts. We were on...More

After visiting the main falls, which were rather low on water, but still impressive, we took the gravel road to tour the park. We had an SUV 4x4, but ran into several potholes where we had no idea how deep the water was. After crossing...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
