If you and your family want to get away from busy city life and truly relax, why not plan a trip to the Augrabies Falls National Park?

You’ll be camping near the thundering Augrabies Falls which cascades down an impressive 56 metres to the turbulent cauldron below. When the Orange River is in full flood, there is nothing more jaw-dropping than the sight of the water rushing over the falls.

The name Augrabies came from the Khoi word ‘Aukoerebis’ which means ‘place of great noise’.

Kokerboom (quiver trees) stand in resolute contrast to the beautiful sunsets and sunrises that make Augrabies the gem that it is. The riverine ecosystems offer great exploration for visitors who can take in the dramatic landscapes at their leisure.

Chalets and camping

The Augrabies Falls rest camp has 59 chalets made up of 50 two-person chalets and nine four-person chalets. Each chalet has a sleeper couch for children under the age of 16.

The campsite has 40 stands with electrical points, 30 stands with power source electricity and the shop offers basic supplies to holidaymakers.

Besides the good communal ablution facilities, the air-conditioned self-catering chalets and shaded camp sites, there is also a communal kitchen for the preparation of food, as well as a laundry and ironing room.
