Augrabies Falls National Park Travel Guide

Augrabies Falls National Park

The Khoi, early pastoralists who lived in this area for thousands of years before the arrival of Europeans, called these falls Aukoerabis (Place of Great Noise), and though Augrabies is a relatively small national park (696,850 acres), its falls are truly impressive. Reports of sightings of a river monster in the gorge have been made frequently but are probably fanciful accounts of shoals of giant barbels, which reach about 7 feet in length. A half-day tour should not cost more than R350 per person, a full day not more than R640. This excludes transportation from Upington, entrance fees, and refreshments.
