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.

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

We visited the Wilderness National park and were very impressed with the camping facilities and the cleanliness of the park. The lawns were green and well kept, and there was no litter lying around. The park offers quite a variety of excursions and we hired a canoe at a reasonable price to paddle up the river. The staff were very... More

So many areas to explore, and one can spend many days exploring - great walks, mt bike trails, fauna and flora, birdwatching, and photographers studio - so many aspects and locations to shoot.
