THE PLACE known as “Akoerebis”, or the “place of great noise”, by the Khoi people is buzzing with excitement after the Orange River plunged down the 56-metre waterfall and reached a whopping 903.50 cumecs on January 23, 2024.

Information from the Department of Water and Sanitation has predicted that the flow could hit nearly 1,000 cumecs by today and tomorrow at Augrabies Falls National Park.

Expect the thundering cascade to last around 14 days before settling down.

Lucius Moolman, the Arid Parks regional general manager, invites everyone to witness the spectacle.

“The Orange River at Augrabies Falls is a must-see. We let you get up close and personal to this amazing sight,” says Moolman.

The park is open seven days a week, offering on-site accommodation for the full experience of a roaring waterfall nearby.
