I didn't know about this illumination!

How long has it been going on?

Did I miss the press release?

Hi BB have a look here..............Falls at night

Morning all
Last night drive was a bit different, had to go out with the media, so the drive was limit to Oranjekom, we did saw giraffes in the area of Moonrock as well as a herd of eland close to Oranjekom waterhole.

After this a visit at the falls to look at the new system of lights, which will enable visitors now to even have a LOOK AT IT DURING THE NIGHT.
Not the whole night :) .

Here is a picture I took of the illuminated Augrabies Falls on the 4th January this year, but unfortunately unlike other years this time, not much water came down over the falls!

Image

…..and this is the illuminated pathway towards the falls! I am of the oppinion that Augrabies is one of the best kept parks in RSA!
Well done! All the lookouts and 'catwalks' have been beautifully restored after the massive floods of two years ago!

Scanning through my 2003 (first) digital pictures I found some nice Augabies ones, this one is shot inside the camp while we were walking back from the falls to our tent.
In 2003 there was no boardwalk to mention of and hardly any fences to protect people from falling into the river.... :shock:

Best regards,

Rob

One of the magnificent groups of Aloe.....as seen in 2003. Today there are far less of these beautiful plants left :(

Does anyone knows what's the cause of the decline?

Best regards,

One of the most beautiful Giraffe sightings we ever had, we love the view with the rocky background matching the colour of these majestic animals!

Best regards,
