The landscape was incredible - Augrabies was stunning. So many other decent places to stay.
Visit in dry season - Must see, but if it is dry season - not much.
Hot air ballooning in Augrabies - Hot air ballooning is something everyone should do at least once in their lifetime. What a fantastic experience.
The Falls - The falls were not at their thundering best because the river was quite low. Never the less the views were impressive and access for viewing the falls are secure and safe . Suggest hats and sun cream .Definitely worth visiting .
Augrabies - Very good, although not in flood when we were there but was impressed by the park and friendly staff and cleanliness of the whole area. We stayed on the area as a stay over while on route to Langebaan touring through to Plettenburg Bay. So far good experiences.
Augrabies in flood - A wondrous place to visit with the water roaring down... I am glad we decided to take the 9 hour drive to see the river in flood. A once a lifetime experience.
Facilities great - Facilities at falls are wonderful and well maintained. Worth the visit. Must congratulate Northern Cape for the well maintained roads and general cleanliness of all their facilities.
Revisiting Augrabies - We were last at Augrabies 20 years ago and were struck by the wonderful improvements. The walk ways and viewing platforms allow one to fully appreciate the magnitude of the gorge and the falls. Well worth a revisit.
Augrabies - Augrabies is an awesome place especially when the falls are full. Lake Grappa has a ski school and they host skiing competitions and they were absolutely FANTASTIC!
Natural Wonder of the Northern Cape - A must see!

Lovely - Lovely place with so much to do.
beautifull green in the desert - nice to visit augrabies falls but thats all
Augrabies - Wonderfull Nature Park with not to much tourists.
Astounding Augrabies - What a truly amazing place to visit. To think that some people travel the world and haven't explored the wonders of our own backyard is a shame. The staff are friendly and efficient, the pathways and lookout points are great, and the falls itself, well you have to see that for yourself to appreciate its beauty and splendor

Augrabies - The whole area is beautiful and enjoyable even for kids, but you must have a car with aircon! Won't go camping there during summer time.
The falls and all the other landmarks in the National park are absolutely stunning! The restaurant in the park has good food en friendly staff.
But there are other areas worthwhile visiting they the Blueputz area ( vineyards) close to the orange River.
Then the whole Riemvasmaak area is a must!
Taste the grapes of the area, so sweet!
Our reviews of Augrabies - Very awesome, breathtaking scenery. We always wanted to go to the Falls. The vast nature and rock formations are indescribable and one can only stand in awe and recognize how great God is.
The lookouts and paths are well kept and very good.

Spectacular - The falls are really quite a sight. The rock formations are very interesting. We went to all the lookouts, the paths leading there is well laid out.
Tourist JS Venter views - Days very hot but realy something to see. We enjoyed the wildlife and river side accomodation.
Augrabies - Augrabies, 7 km away is a Nature Lovers paradise. Great walks and drives in what feels like an alien landscape. Magic!

The Augrabies National Park - The Waterfalls are breathtaking and we enjoyed a self drive game drive with my wife...the park is well looked after and peaceful.
A Bucket List Visit! - My elderly mother has wanted to visit for years and although the weather wasn't fantastic, the time spent at the falls was amazing. I was worried about accessibility because of my mom's hip (replacement), but she had no problems, and with her crutch we walked those walkways and lookouts for 3 and a half hours!
Impressive! - Well worth the visit. Pity walkways are only being repaired now, but once they are finished it will be great. The Dassie Trail is well worth the walk.
Somewhere different - This area is mostly visited by tourists who have been to South Africa several times. Augrabies Falls is a highlight of the Northern Cape. This is a remote arid location with bizarre rock formations and the sixth largest waterfall in the world in an amazingly impressive gorge, makes the area an unmissable destination for those looking for somewhere a bit different.
Augrabies - The park should step up its service, we couldn't book the night safari because the tour guide was on holiday. Also several view decks are still broken after the floods of January 2011. But the falls are impressive, even when the water is low.
Repairs needed - The Falls' walkways should be repaired immediately.
