Hi there Mariek,

You can book directly with AG (Augrabies Guru) or phone Augrabies on 054 452 9200 and make a booking.

If you read the sightings reports of AG on the forum you will have an idea of what they see, I would recommend a drive with AG as they see things we might not.

Have a great stay


KG

As some of you might know there are two trails in the Park: The Dassie Trail and the longer one the Klipspringer trail. Recently much work has been done by the Conservation Department to brought in two other trails, which will give visitors to the Park a choice between them, or do all of them :) .
The Ebony trail, name derive because of the many Ebony trees and the name was also given by Nardus du Plessis(Section Ranger).
This trail have the benefit that it do not matter what time of the day you do it as it is a shady trail, and for those who have experience Augrabies in the summer months know how it felt here.
Also good for birders and if you like plants another bonus to try and identified these species,or just to enjoy it!
The other trail is the Gorge trail.
The Ebony Trail will perhaps be open at the end of the month.
A few pics of the Ebony trail:
