About Augrabies

Augrabies falls under the ZF Mgcawu district municipality and Kai !Garib local municipality. Augrabies does not have an airport, the closest one is at Upington.

Augrabues is derived from  ‘Aukoerebis’ ,  a Khoi word that means ‘place of big noise’… a very apt description of the place as water thunders when it falls into the crevace  56m below to follow the 18 km long ravine before it levels out onto the plains. Die Augrabies Falls National Park is a jewel in the arid Northern Cape offering the tourist and visitor an exciting bestemming with dramatic contrast. Animals, birds, insects, and plants have made unique adaptations to this very special environment.
