Visit Augrabies Falls

Unread post by Stipkeafrika » Tue Jan 26, 2016 10:45 am

Good morning,
Is it possible to visit the park with a normal car, or do you need an 4x4? We don't know yet if we stay inside or outside the park.
If it's not possible to visit the park with a normal car, does anybody know a tour operator who does tours into the park?

Thanks,
Martin

Warm welcome to the forum Stipkeafrika :clap:

Its perfectly OK to visit Augrabies in a normal car, a 4 x 4 is not necessary.

Have a read through Augrabies: Getting there and also Augrabies Fall: Advice and Info
where I'm sure you will get lots of answers! :thumbs_up:

I take the liberty to 'use' this thread, as my question is somewhat related:

Are there Gate times at Augrabies? I'm staying at the camp insider the Park, do I have to keep to the gate times before I head out or return to the camp?
Thanks & Regards Daniel

daniel,
Gate Times are 07:00 – 18:30.
As the park is not normally busy those times are fine especially as the scenery doesn't get up any earlier, nor hide from visitors.
