Throwback Thursday: 15 April 2021

Today and over the next few weeks we are going back to our visit to the Augrabies Falls National Park on 11 September 2013

Augrabies Falls National Park is a national park located around the Augrabies Falls, about 120 km west of Upington in the Northern Cape Province, South Africa. It was established in 1966.

The Augrabies Falls National Park covers an area of 820 km² and stretches along the Orange River. The area is very arid. The waterfall is about 60 meters high and is awe-inspiring when the river is in flood. The gorge below the falls averages about 240 m deep and runs for 18 kilometers. The gorge provides an impressive example of erosion into a granitic basement.

Today we go back to 11 September 2013. We stopped at The Pink Farmstall for breakfast on our way to Augrabies Falls National Park. I just loved this farmstall, it was very interesting. The owners are very creative.

We are still driving through the Goegap Nature Reserve, not far outside Springbok. I tried to identify the flowers, but some of them I am not sure of. I will send an email to the Botanical Society to see if they can help me. I any of you can help please feel free to contact me or leave a comment. I assigned numbers to the flowers who still needs to be identified.
