Augrabies Falls National Park
Situated west of Upington on the banks of the Orange River, this game park offers the visitor spectacular scenery.
Here the Orange River has carved a path through the granite rocks to plummet down a narrow gorge, 90 metres deep. Augrabies got its name from a Khoi word meaning "The noisy one".
The game reserve of 15 415 hectares, around the falls, allows one to see a large selection of game. These would include animals such as black rhino, kudu, eland, springbok and giraffe.
Things to do:
The Klipspringer hiking trail is a three day trail which will take you into the arid, rocky landscapes where you will see breathtaking landscapes of the river and its surrounds. Two huts with bunks, toilets and braai (barbecue) facilities are provided.
The Black Rhino adventure includes a boat trip down the Orange River.
You can also go on a Night Game Drive where you will see the cat and other nocturnal species, all under the guidance and supervision of a fully qualified guide and game tracker.
The Gariep 3-in-1 Route is for the more active visitor. This day trip includes adventures such as mountain biking, canoeing down a section of the Orange River and a short hike through the game reserve.
Where to stay:
The rest camp provides fully equipped, air-conditioned chalets with four beds, toilet and kitchenette. Camping facilities are available in a well shaded caravan park
