Throwback Thursday: 8 July 2021

Today our visit to The Augrabies Falls National Park in the Northern Cape comes to an end. I will definitely visit the park again and this time around I will use all that I have learned from my photography course.

We only encountered some wildlife on the last stretch of our visit to the park.

Augrabies Falls National Park: 2013-09-11

We continue our walk at the main falls. Before we head out to explore the rest of the park by car.

I just loved the different colors of the stones and rock formations, and how smooth some of it was because of the friction when the water masses pass through.

Today we are continuing our walk through the main area of the park. We headed to the main falls, but was very disappointed when we saw it. Although it was still beautiful it was not as spectacular as the brochure and the photos on the internet. I asked one of the guides where the main fall is and he showed me to it. He could see the disappointment on my face and told me that if I want to see it in all its glory we must return in January…. So the Augrabies Falls National Park is back on my Bucket list.


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 Falls derived their name from the Khoi word ‘Aukoerebis’ meaning ‘place of great noise’. Essentially a scenic park where Klipspringer and 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 000ha of unique riverine ecosystems to explore, with viewpoints from which to survey the dramatic landscape that unfolds below

The best part of this visit and Sanparks Tour was the company. I loved traveling with my parents. I miss it a lot.
