Things To See

  1. Quiver Tree – this iconic tree, like the aloe, is part of the Augrabies landscape.
  2. Spectacular views – as the sun lowers in the sky the main falls are lit up. The lights are switched on from 20h00 – 22h00.
  3. Verreaux’s (Black) Eagle
  4. Moon Rock: A massive exfoliation dome or “whaleback” which is a prominent landmark of Augrabies Falls. Walking to the summit will give one of the best views of the park and its surroundings.
  5. Swart Rante: These foreboding black hills are another distinct landmark in Augrabies. Quartz-poor, these igneous rocks seem to form a natural border between the harsh environment of the gorge area and a more fertile area on the other side. The contrast between the two landscapes can best be seen from the top of Swart Rante.
