Whenever we talk about our Nov 2011 trip to South Africa, Nyaru finds its way into our discussion invariably. What a time we had in Nyaru. Be it the nature, wonderful wild animals, horse back safari at the dawn, 4 x 4 safari at the dusk, sunset picnic near giraffe, eco-friendly huts, wild bar, homely food or Ruan and his family, all fit perfectly well in this little gem. Just few minutes drive from Mossel Bay, this private game reserve has everything that is available in a more expensive neighbors. Ruan and his Mum went extra mile to help and to make our stay memorable. Home cooked food was amazing. We were vegetarians but that was not a problem. We used to spend our dinner time talking to Ruan and his family. Donovan took me out for a horse back safari and it would remain in my memory forever. On the horseback I could get so close to the animals and needless to say Donovan knows their behavior so well. The horses were great. We were with our 5 months old son but we didnt face any problem, In fact he enjoyed the 4X4 Safari with us.
We highly recommend this place as they have kept a very reasonable price for everything which shows their passion. It is a private game reserve and animals are their life.... We loved everything in Nyaru and we'l surely return to this paradise.
God bless Nyaru family and we wish you great success in running the reserve. I am sure we'll see many more of fauna when we return in near future.
