Augrabies Falls National Park

The Augrabies Falls National Park, an hour from Upington, comprises an area of 820 sq km and stretches along the Orange River. The vegetation is suited to the arid desert climate. The Kokerboom, or Quiver Tree grows here. They are succulents and can store huge amounts of water in their stems and so survive long periods of drought. The park contains a game reserve with rhinos as the main attraction.

This park is also famous for its Eland, Springbok, Giraffe, amazing rock formations as well as a 3-day, 40km hike on the Klipspringer Hiking Trail. For those looking for less of a challenge, there are three different hour-long trails which can also be enjoyed.
