So, you think Augrabies is all about the waterfall. Well, maybe not. I personally find waterfalls quite boring. Just lots of water gushing over an edge. So? And this isn’t even an edge, its just a crack!
But there are so many more reasons to visit this park. For starters, the landscape is multi variate in composition; shades of pastels in colouration and totally beguiling. If you can’t find at least one angle for a special landscape composition, you should think about donating your camera to somebody more deserving.
And then there is the fauna. Who would have expected to see giraffe in this forbidding landscape, and then such an attractive animal to boot? Light in coloration, majestic in bearing, these guys are always a pleasure to look at, and even more so in this stark environment.
(We've taken in so much stunning scenery in the last week, tripping through the Northern Cape, that some of us are getting a bit blazé about it!)
