"Wonderful waterfalls and rocks at Augrabies"
There are other great views from viewpoints in the park and an excellent walk to the top of a granite outcrop and back - excellent signage and good paths.
Food and service in the large restaurant were also excellent" See all these reviews: 13n in South Africa; 8n in Namibia

"Keep the door shut to keep out the monkeys"
The gorge and falls are awe inspiring though June is not a time during which the falls are ever in full flow. The restaurant is OK but if you wish to self cater I suggest you get your food before you arrive in the park because the shop is not impressive.
There are some great walks and the short one to Arrow Point brings you to a vertigo inducing point just before two gorges converge. The drives in the park take you to some remarkable viewpoints and on the way you may meet the odd giraffe, eland and numberless dassies." See all these reviews: 16n in South Africa
"Rainbows at Augrabies"
The staff were happy, friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and comfortable. The first time we have ever seen a giraffe sitting down in the park - it was gone when we returned that way later so must have been OK.
A gem of a place!" See all these reviews: 11n in Namibia; 10n in South Africa
"Augrabies Falls Restcamp review"
Cute dassies and colourful lizards everywhere, and a huge array of birds. Great to be able to wander around freely, and we went on a long walk as well as a lot of excellent self driving. We did one of the organised night drives but did not see much of note.
We had three nights and could easily have stayed longer. Very good restaurant." See all these reviews: 15n in South Africa
"Might be good in rain season"
However, the staff were very friendly. The cabins were nice and well maintained. The restaurant was fair (heavy "american style" meals), and there were 3 pools available for swimming. It could be a good place with young children for a few days.
The paths are nice and very well marked. Also, it was fine to drive around in the park." See all these reviews: 10n in South Africa
"Comfortable new lodges at Augrabies"
Walk to the falls which are floodlit at night along walkways that could be wheelchair friendly at a push. The landscape around the camp has been tamed but get away from here and from the trippers along the dirt road to Moon Rock and beyond is a journey through a moonscape to the gorge of the Orange River for stunning views. That's the best bit." See all these reviews: 13n in South Africa
"Augrabies Falls Restcamp review"
I did not think I would be that impressed with the waterfall as I have been to Victoria Falls many times as well as Iguazu Falls, but the rocks and endless sky make a wonderful vision.
Well signed trails and excellent walkway facilities to the falls including disabled access.
Watch out for the monkeys!! Just make sure your chalet windows are locked." See all these reviews: 12n in South Africa
We did the ebony walk which took us way longer than the suggested 2.5 hours. Also did the dassie trail which I would recommend when the weather is dry to anyone with a reasonable level of fitness. The scenery is just stunning.
We also did some self guided game drives to the various viewpoints. We saw springbok, gemsbok, giraffe, yellow mongoose, ground squirrel, daisies, vervet monkeys, black spitting cobra.
We also did a guided night drive and saw cape hare, steenbok and gemsbok.
Overall really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it." See all these reviews: 8n in Namibia; 7n in South Africa
