About the Park: This is where the mighty Orange River is at its most impressive as it thunders its way through a canyon and falls down into a pool walled by 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.
Activities: Self-guided walking trails include the 2km Gorge Trail and the 5km circular Dassie Hiking Trail. For those wanting more of a challenge there is the 3 day Klipspringer Hike (closed 15 Oct – 31 March) that goes down into the gorge and back out again. Game drives. Catch and release fishing.
About the Park: Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is an amalgamation of South Africa’s previous Kalahari Gemsbok National Park and Botswana’s Gemsbok National Park, this park was officially opened on 12 May 2000. It was the first formally declared transfrontier park in Africa. Two of the three Kalahari eco-types are found here. The south-western part comprises duneveld, with its unique semi-desert vegetation and the north-eastern part comprises Kalahari plains thornveld.
