“best experience ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

unspoilt nature, wild animals right there infront of your eyes. good for selfdrive with family to take as much time as they need. cape vidal is the cherry on top, don forget to bring swim wear and snacks, the beach is sooo fantastic. you can also explore the loops on your way back. great find. fantastic place. you can spend the whole day here,

“Wonderful National Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

great drive through the park 4 wheel drive helps if you go on any of the loop roads but the main road is well paved. Don't forget to bring water and a bathing suit as the beaches are fantastic

“Do the boat trip and drive in the park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

First the boat trip - good value for money, excellent informative guides and lots of crocodiles, hippos and birds to get close to.
Drive yourself through the park at least to Cape Vidal, taking all the one way loops. You will see a great range of birds, bok, zebra and not difficult to see rhino also. This area never seems to be crowded so still feels wild and free. Do watch your lunch with the vervet monkeys close to the beach. Their reactions were much quicker than ours! Possible to replace some missing items at the little shop near the campsite if needed though.

“Nice to drive through yourselves”

Nice park to drive through by yourselves and see all the animals right in front of you.
Beware of the monkeys.

“Wild and Uncommercialized”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Cape Vidal, driving loop near Cape Vidal (bridge on one end is out so it is not really a loop), many wild animals and birds, beautiful dunes sweeping up into the forested dunes of uninhabited land. Coral Divers of Sodwana Bay, beautiful reefs. Unforgettable.
