  • The Mighty Augrabies Falls

    This is where the mighty Orange River is at its most impressive as it thunders its way through a ravine and cascades down into a pool walled by sheer granite, 56m below. Few sights are as awesome or sound as deafening as water thundering down the 56m Augrabies Waterfall when the Orange River is in full flood..

  • The Place of Great Noise

    The Falls derived their name from the Khoi word ‘Aukoerebis’ meaning ‘place of great noise’. Essentially a scenic park where Klipspringer and kokerboom (quiver trees) stand in stark silhouette against the African sky, silent sentinels in a strangely unique environment where only those that are able to adapt survive.

  • So Much to Explore

    Do not plan on just nipping in to see the main falls - there is much more to experience in this arid piece of moonscape-like land. Awesome and strikingly beautiful it offers the visitor over 50 000ha of unique riverine ecosystems to explore, with viewpoints from which to survey the dramatic landcape that unfolds below.

  • The land of contrasts

    Augrabies is situated in a semi-arid region, on the rim of the great Kalahari basin, which implies low annual rainfall and extreme variations of temperatures.

    Each season offers something new to experience and new challenges to endure.

  • Scorching daytime highs

    In the peak summer months (January / February) the average daytime temperature is 41°C, but highs of 46°C have been recorded. During these months the high temperatures are further aggravated by the many rocks where temperatures can reach up to 70°C during the day. Summer nights are usually more pleasant but temperatures will remain high at around 26°C.
  • Freezing desert nights

    During winter months the average daytime temperature often hovers around 22°C but lower temperatures are a possibility with freezing mornings very common. Winter nights average around 0°C although the temperature drops to -5° occasionally. The area is very prone to frost during the peak and end of winter period. Autumn and spring are characterized by pleasant, moderate temperatures throughout.
  • A harsh world to conquer

    The average annual rainfall in the park is 124mm, with most rains occurring between November and April. Summer rain usually falls in short, heavy bursts, accompanied by spectacular thunderstorms and strong winds. Winter rains are gentle and last 1-3 days resulting in a flower paradise.
