A great park with well defined walking tracks. The section we did up to the waterfalls (Half collared kingfisher trail), required to use a punt to get across the river - it was a little challenging getting on and off the punt, but manageable. A reasonable level of fitness is required for the walk to the waterfall as there are... More

Being out of season it was very quite and peaceful. We walked the Big tree trail which was very nice. Also were lucky enough to see the knysna loeries.

We just spent some time there, exploring and just enjoying the well maintained Park. The Staff were very friendly and helpful. It was a very quiet time there and it's not too expensive now in the Low Season. We will def be going back when we are in the area again.

We went on the waterfall track but did not have time to get to the waterfall (3 hours needed). Even so, it is an interesting walk through indigenous forest along track and boardwalk and easy. The pontoon across the river is unique and worth doing.

We loved the walking trail to the waterfall. we also enjoyed a Segway tour. The staff were so friendly and very kind. Assisted my six year old daughter so beautifully on the tour.

Lovely camp sites on the banks of the Touw river. Beautiful birdlife. Hired some canoes and spent some time on the river and a glorious day on the beach.

Lovely 8km walk up to a lovely little waterfall where there are plenty of rocks you could perch on for a small picnic. Well maintained path running along the rivers edge and some lovely views.

I visited the park and I regret that I didn't have enough time. There's so much to do inside the park. There are several hiking trails, segway tours, canoe trips, and sightseeing trips.. I have seen log cabins as well as campsites. The facilities are well-maintained. Entrance to the park is R32 for residents (including residents who are non-South Africans)... More
