Augrabies Falls, situated in the Augrabies National Park in South Africa, is a breathtaking marvel nestled in the heart of an arid landscape in the Northern Cape province.

Often referred to as “Place of Great Noise” by the indigenous Khoi people where the Orange River (one of the longest rivers in Africa) thunders down a series of granite rock formations creating a cascade of about 170 metres wide and 56 metres (when not in flood) into the gorge below.

The Augrabies National Park offers a diverse array of fauna and flora for nature lovers. Visitors can embark on scenic hikes, explore numerous viewpoints, and appreciate the unique geological formations that surround the falls.

This South African gem offers an unforgettable experience for those seeking to connect with the wonders of the natural world, where earth’s power and beauty converge in a symphony of sights and sounds.

Contact me if you are interested in a tour of the arid lands of the Northern Cape.
