AUGRABIES, an amazing place with the most beautiful nature en great wildlife. We saw lots of klipspringers and even the black Eagle. We were there in Juli so that the Falls were not that big but still very impressive. Look at the video what we saw.

Augrabies: Echo Corner

Unread postby Johann » Mon Feb 23, 2009 10:23 am

Another panorama I stitched together.

Echo Corner is quite a beautiful spot on the Orange river. I've seen quite a few Klipspringers around here. And of course my first ever sighting of Verreauxs' Eagles was here, 2 eagles soaring just above the rocks. We were told this is the most likely spot to see them when in the park.

Panoramic view from the Oranjekom lookout, looking back up the gorge towards the Ararat lookout somewhere on the rigth.
