Augrabies Falls National Park

Known as “the place of great noise”, Augrabies is home to South Africa’s largest waterfall that tumbles some 56m into an 18km gorge on the Orange River.

The falls are at their best towards the end of the summer rainfall season when the river is at its fullest (March/April).

The area is also known for its dramatic, rocky desert scenery featuring landmark outcrops such as Moon Rock, and view sites of the river gorge at Ararat and Echo Corner.

Hiking Trails like the Dassie Trail and Klipspringer Hiking Trail is popular.

Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park

One of the largest conservation areas in Africa and a jewel in the crown of South Africa’s national parks, the Kgalagadi offers visitors the chance to experience the beauty of the Kalahari where lions still roam free and the majestic oryx can be photographed against a backdrop of red dunes and sweeping grassland.

Many wildlife photographers regard a visit to the Kgalagadi as an apex experience.

Riemvasmaak Hotsprings

A surprising sight awaits those who make the long trek to this settlement on the northern bank of the Orange River close to Augrabies where a hot spring can be found in a deep ravine surrounded by soaring granite cliffs.

The Riemvasmaak community has endured, even though they were forcibly removed from this area under apartheid.

In recent years, Riemvasmaakers have returned to make a living in this stark and inhospitable land and those who visit will be awed by the lunar landscape that they will encounter here.
