Upington and Augrabies Fall NP in South Africa

March 24 - 28, 2019

We crossed back into South Africa and were given a 60 day visa. This was a concern for us. We needed enough time to deliver the van to the port in Durban and fly out of South Africa on May 1st. We wanted to spend the rest of our travel time in South Africa, touring the areas we had not seen previously. Currently we are enjoying western South Africa. We spent our first couple of nights in Upington on the Orange River. Next we went to Augrabies Falls National Park, a small very scenic park on the Orange River.

Bird nests - We have seen these every where.

They have nice boardwalk paths with viewing platforms overlooking the falls.

Yawning dassie. They look very similar to a marmot.

We took a short game drive. We saw lots of rocks.

Great sign in a coffe shop.

We had a milk tart and cappuccino. Delicious.
