What a experience for adults and children alike. So many parks to view great species, but this one has the hunters wich is hard to find these days. Great facilities and great experience Just get ready for a traffic jam where you least expect it.

Had a fabulous day, our little boy absolutely loved every minute of it. We had a bit of rain but that didn't stop us from enjoying ourselves. The guide was amazing and informative. We will definitely be back soon !

Unbelievable to have such a beautiful experience just outside of Jo'burg! An ideal day trip, next time we're booking a chalet to experience the night life and sounds as well.

There is a small entrance fee for adults. Children under 12 are free, but you have to pay separately for each activity like petting cubs or cheetahs

No, this park is a nature preserve with animals sectioned off in as natural of a habitat as possible given they’re in a controlled park environment that spans hundreds of acres.
