Description of Accommodation:

Your South African vacation start with  Zuid-Afrika Specialist

SAN Parks Augrabies National Park – Augrabies Falls National Park

Here where the visibility is phenomenal and the sound deafening, the Orange River falls 56 meters down when the river is in full flow! A waterfall that was called ‘Aukoerebis’ by the Khoi people, which means so much as: “place of the big noise”. The water finds its way through an 18-kilometer river gorge surrounded by rocks. Rock parties with names such as Moonrock, Ararat, and Echo Corner are places for the little klipspringer. The box tree makes a beautiful shadow as the sun disappears and the African sky slowly turns into a starry sky. Birds, reptiles, springboks, gemsboks and giraffes go to sleep vigilantly. While you still enjoy your braai during your wonderful holiday stay.
