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, 56 m below. Few sights are as awesome or sound as deafening as water thundering down the 56 m Augrabies Waterfall when the Orange River is in full flood. The Falls derived their name from the Khoi word ‘Aukoerebis’ meaning ‘place of great noise’. Essentially a scenic park where klipspringer and kokerboom or 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. 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 50,000-hectares of unique riverine ecosystems to explore, with viewpoints from which to survey the dramatic landcape that unfolds below. Augrabies Falls is easily accessed from Upington, as it is only 120 km south of the town along tarred roads.

Augrabies Falls National Park has only the 1 camp, but it is also the largest camp of all the arid parks. All chalets are fully equipped with self-catering facilities and are air-conditioned. More than half of the camp sites, all set in a wonderfully shady area, have electricity and besides the usual ablution facilities there is also a communal kitchen, laundry and ironing room.

For those wanting a break from the traditional camp braai there is a fully licensed restaurant and if supplies run low you’ll find a well stocked shop. The 3 swimming pools are for residents’ use only. Both the chalets and the camping site are within walking distance of the main falls and access to them have been made wheelchair friendly with an extensive network of boardwalks.

Set off the shady, secluded reception area of Augrabies National Park, the Augrabies Falls Conference Centre venue is an ideal venue for small to medium meetings, workshops and seminars. The conference centre can accommodate up to 70 delegates in a well-equipped, air-conditioned facility.
