The Khoi people call it ‘Aukoerebis’ which means Place of Great Noise, and in fact few sounds are as deafening, or sights as breath-taking to behold as that of the Augrabies Waterfall when the Orange River is in full flood. Unleashed from its rocky surroundings to thunder 56m into the abyss of the Orange River Gorge, the Augrabies Waterfall is not easily forgotten.

The 55 383 hectares on both the northern and southern sides of the Orange River make up the Augrabies Falls National Park and provide sanctuary to a diversity of species, from the very smallest succulents, birds and reptiles, to springbok, gemsbok, giraffe and the endangered Hartmann’s Mountain Zebra.
