Few sights are as awesome or a sound as deafening as water thundering down the Augrabies Waterfall when the Orange River is in full flood. The Khoi people called it ‘Aukoerebis’, or place of Great Noise, as this powerful flow of water is unleashed into the abyss of the Orange River Gorge. 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 ultimately survive. It is a sanctuary to a diversity of species, from the very smallest succulents, birds and reptiles to Hartmann's mountain zebra, springbok, gemsbok and giraffe. Accommodation in this natural wonderland is available in the form of campsites, self-catering chalets, and family cottages, each with various facilities to suit a variety of guest requirements. Hiking, game drives, picnics and mountain biking provide adventurous and exciting ways to explore the park. There are several interesting natural landmarks in the park, from the Falls themselves to the river gorge and the imposing Swart Rante mountains.
