All the roads were blocked off so I assumed I had to walk but with no map I decided to ask someone who looked like they worked there. When... More

Many different walking and cycling routes, short ones and long ones. Some game around but nothing to be scared of just stay away from the giraffes. Only bathrooms available on site. Green lawns for picnics.

There is some great 4x4ing on this route. The animal sightings are also great for the family & gives something for the kids to do.
