Augrabies Falls

The Augrabies Falls is a waterfall on the Orange River, South Africa, within the Augrabies Falls National Park. The falls are around 60m in height. The original Khoikhoi residents named the waterfall Ankoerebis, ‘place of big noises’, from which the Trek Boers, who settled here later on, derived the name Augrabies. The gorge at the Augrabies Falls is 240 m deep and 18 km long, and is an impressive example of granite erosion.
