Vaalwater Attractions: What to do & Places to Visit in Vaalwater
"On first impression, this looks like a zoo. But as you enter, you quickly realise that this is a very unique experience. It is an unforgettable interactive adventure which allows you to connect with wildlife in a whole new way. For instance, there is a massive aviary filled with a huge variety of wa..."ter, land and flight birds, including a couple of very friendly and affectionate cockatoos. None of the animals were particularly shy and most were relaxing near the front of their enclosures meaning that you could observe them in very close proximity. This is the first time I have seen a lion being taken for a walk on a leash. We even had the opportunity to stroke it at out own risk of course! A tiger cub was also brought out to play on the grass. The staff were so passionate about being there and so engaging that it felt like such a privilege to be part of their world, even if only for a few hours. This is the best R70 I have ever spent!

"We recently stayed at Matamba and highly recommend the campsite, which is easily one of the best we have ever ecountered in Southern Africa. If you are passing through on the way north to Botswana or if you want a quiet, relaxed bush break weekend - this is it. We especially enjoyed the relaxed walk..."s among the antelope and giraffe.

"We have just spent an idyllic weekend in the peace of the African Bush. Although we went there specifically for a weekend away, it is an ideal stop over for any travellers heading for Botswana. Such an absolute treat to be welcomed by warm and knowledgeable hosts. Fantastic hiking through the bush a..."nd incredible to be so close to all the wildlife the camp has to offer. Could not write a review without commenting on the most incredible bathroom that I have ever encountered on a camp site. Felt like we were in a 5 star hotel. Some great plans afoot to expand the camp and create Mara's camp for secluded camping, alone or with friends. I shall definitely be going back.
