The Augrabies Falls National Park

Overview

OOne really shouldn’t leave the Northern Cape without visiting the spectacular Augrabies Falls, particularly when the Orange River is in full flood, and the powerful force of the water plummets down a 56m-high waterfall. The entire park covers 55 383 hectares and is home to a diversity of species of both animals and plants. The park capitalises on the desolate semi-arid landscape of the northern reaches of the Northern Cape. Punctuated by solitary quiver trees and rocky outcrops, it has an other-worldly feel to it, which makes exploring the park all the more exciting. Many adventure activities are also offered in the park. These range from hiking (try the overnight Klipspringer and Dassie hiking trails) to canoeing the Orange River, a 4x4 wilderness trail and mountain biking.
