Absolute beautiful place to visit. Safety rails to protect visitors. Only downfall was that falls wasn't in full flood, but still something to see.

The views in this park is absolutely breathtaking. We had an amazing adventure visiting all the viewing points in the park. Take some time and walk on the moon rock. You will be rewarded with some stunning photo opportunities.

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
