“Nice family outing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We rented canoes from Eden Adventures and paddled up the river for forty minutes before hiking the last forty minutes along the board-walk. Well worth the effort.

“long walk to waterfall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Enjoyed our walk but plan carefully. It takes a good hour each way to the waterfall and we only just made it back before dark. It's a very bumpy and tricky walk in places so you need to be fit

“Wonderful, peaceful location!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

We often spend a morning or afternoon in this magnificent location. Our children camp here every year and it is one of South Africa's best kept secrets. The beautiful Touw river meanders through this very well maintained park. It is wonderfully tranquil with great birding and really beautiful trails through lush indigenous forest. It is pleasure to visit or to stay in these beautiful surroundings.

“A World Away!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Lovely to be able to drive right into this well-run reserve. Very friendly and attentive staff, well maintained facilities, lovely walks and hiking trails. Good on the Parks Board for taking such good care of things! If you love nature, the outdoors or just looking for a little sanctuary, this is the place - go and visit. Lots of options for couples, friends, families, kids.
