South Africa: Augrabies Falls National Park - flood updates

Only the central section of the Augrabies Falls National Park is open for game drives. The western section is still closed due to the damaged roads caused by the floods. Daily drives can be taken up to the “Fonteintjie” (or the fly-over).

The day visitor/picnic area, including the braai and swimming pool facilities for day visitors are currently not available. The road into the scenic area, including the three lookout points overlooking the river namely Oranjekom, Ararat and Echo Corner, had to be closed due to damage to park roads. Boardwalks leading to only three of the six lookout decks are still open for visitors. (This includes the first deck downstream of the main falls.) Visitors should wear appropriate footwear as the rocks can be slippery when wet. [src. sanparks.org]
