The Augrabies Falls National Park is to be found in the rocky Kalahari region of the Northern Cape Province, where the Orange River flows wide and slowly through this barren and desolate landscape. Then, in an ultimate demonstration of its awesome power, the mighty Orange River thunders down a 56 meter sheer rock wall in a spectacular misty tumble of cataracts into a turbulent, rock-enclosed pool 240 meters below. From here the powerful waters have cut their way deep into the granite rock, forming the famous Orange River Gorge.
