About Augrabies Falls
When the mighty Orange River is in full flood the sound of water thundering down the 56-metre high Augrabies Waterfall is deafening. It’s an awesome experience at any time of year.
Called Aukoerebis(place of great noise) by the Khoi San people, the powerful flow of water gushing out from the vast granite abyss of the Orange River Gorge. Besides the falls, great sites to visit are Moon Rock, Ararat and Echo Corner.
Home to a diversity of species, the Augrabies National Park and its spectacular granite gorge offers great birding, some small game, reptiles, springbok, gemsbok and giraffe and a fun hiking trail.
