Augrabies Falls National Park

Overview

Introduction

Augrabies Falls National Park, South Africa, features a stunning waterfall (185 ft/56 m high), whose name derives from a San word meaning "Place of Great Noise." It is located near the border with Namibia, about 390 mi/625 km north of Cape Town.

The natural beauty is ripe for photography as the Orange River plunges more than 300 ft/100 m into a narrow canyon and the surrounding landscape of giant molded rocks is equally impressive. For a truly breathtaking experience, try a walk across the footbridge. The park has some wildlife and hiking, notably the three-day Klipspringer trail, and the Grade 2-3 rapids upriver are run by commercial rafters.
