Visit Augrabies Falls National Park

Augrabies Falls National Park is South Africa's most stunning water falls, a must visit. The Augrabies Falls thundering down from the Orange River Gorge was referred to as “Aukoerebis” by the Khoi people. The name means “place of great noise” and the 56-meter descent results in a deafening sound as water drops down into the river below. The Augrabies Falls is a waterfall on the Orange River, the largest river in South Africa. Since 1966 the waterfall, set in a desolate and rugged milieu, is enclosed by the Augrabies Falls National Park.

 

The Augrabies Falls have recorded 7,800 cubic metres (280,000 cu ft) of water every second in floods in 1988 (and 6,800 cubic metres (240,000 cu ft) in the floods of 2006). This is over three times the average high season flow rate of Niagara Falls of 2,400 cubic metres (85,000 cu ft) per second, more than four times Niagara's annual average, and greater than Niagara's all-time record of 6,800 cubic metres (240,000 cu ft) per second
