South African National Parks (SANParks) Augrabies Falls National Park is putting on a show like no other as the flow of water over the falls is anticipated to reach 2000 cubic metres per second (cumec) in the next two weeks. Due to the high rainfall across the country, the falls are getting full and a wonder to experience. 

The aptly named “Akoerebis” or “place of great of noise” as it was described by the Khoi people is roaring with sound as the Orange River cascades down the 56 metre high waterfall at an amazing 1065 cumec as recorded on 31 January 2021.

The Department of Water & Sanitation indicated that it will stay like this for today with a slow decrease until Friday, 05 February 2021, when it is expected to rise to approximately 2000 cumec. It is predicted that it will stay over 2000 cumec from Friday for the next five to seven days.

The Augrabies Falls National Park will definitely be roaring with sound and a sight to behold for the next two weeks. So come and #LiveYourWild at our spectacular Augrabies Falls National Park in the Arid Region.
