Augrabies Falls


The Augrabies falls are located in the Augrabies National Park about 120 km from Upington in the Northern Cape province of South Africa. The falls are on the Orange River. The gorge at the Augrabies Falls is 240 m deep and 18 km long, and is an impressive example of granite erosion. The original Khoikhoi residents named the waterfall Ankoerebis (meaning “place of big noises”). The Trek Boers (who settled here later on) derived the name Augrabies from this name. I’ve never been here but I would love to one day. This photo of the Augrabies falls has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 29th of October 2010.
