“What A Day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

We spent 12 hours driving through this park. You can drive through yourself, or hire on with a tour. The views are breathtaking, and there are picnic areas with clean restrooms, as well as an eatery. It was wonderful!

“Wonderful vistas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Went with Heritage tours, very knowledgable and friendly guides, grass was long so did not manage to see big cats but did see elephant, rhino, giraffe,zebra, warthog, so many different buck and numerous birds. The terrain is underlating so you have incredible vistas

“True Africa!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

You don't have to stay at the Park itself, however get there early for a safari and you will see amazing animals right before your eyes..from herds of elephants, wathogs, wild dogs, giraffes, rhinos, zebras...there is a vast number fo aniimals to see. The drive itself along the greenery and up the mountain is spectacular. It's hard to spot the cat family but when you see an injured Zebra you know they are nearby.

“Amazing Game Drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Took a day safari around the park and was incredibly impressed, an early start meant our group was rather dopey when we first set off but that all changed once we got our first sighting of wildlife, a rhino who stood staring at us before our ranger (who was excellent) decided to head off for fear of disturbing her.

Our next sighting was a herd of Giraffes, there's something quite majestic about these animals and it was a thrill to see them happily chewing on tree branches seemingly happy to let us gaze while they enjoyed their meal.

Over the crackling of a radio our guide heard Elephants spotted nearby, we raced to the area and saw a number of these stunning creatures strolling across the landscape.

Cannot recommend highly enough, a truly magical day.
