We visited Augrabies Falls in march, clearly not the best time of year because of low water in the Orange river. The trail through the park is nice en suitable for normal cars, the water crossings are a bit of a challenge though. Maybe we...More

Spectacular! The park is well cared for and neat. The roads might be dirt roads but they are well kept! The amenities clean and the walkways well planned and provides best viewing opportunities! The gorge... and the picknick spot well designed!

I has been twenty six years ago that I last visited the falls. Unfortunately the time of the year (January) saw very little water flowing over the falls. The best time is during the winter months when the river offers a spectacular spectacle. Nonetheless we...More
