“Excellent and splendid view from the Godswindow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

Binoculars give all the splendour hidden from the naked eye. This is an awesome view which lives the spirit refreshed and fulfilled.

“Breathtaking!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

We arrived at 1700 only to be told that the gate was closed and they only took day visitors up till 5pm... Regardless we decided to explore other routes.. This took us to to the Dam where the view was the most amazing I'd ever seen!! & this from someone whose travelled the world! Would recommend this to anyone! Anyone at all!!!

“Whatch the hawkers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

Every pull in turist site you pull in at charges you and it's also like a market. We were sold a black rhino and told it was ebony wood only to get back to the U.K. and unpack it to see it had got damaged and lost a leg , but it was made of cement! Looked very authentic. The route itself is a pleasant days drive bit I wouldm't say it's worth driving 100 miles to see.

Really good views but a lot of traveling, there is also a local market
here with some local objects to buy.
