We had a work function - a potjie kos competition there- second year in a row. Great place, peaceful and lots of animals to see. The facilities are clean and neat. The braaiers can however be a bit bigger

Got lost on the way there. Directions to the restaurant was not very clear. Have to pay entry fee. Had A breakfast at the restaurant, extremely busy, got the feeling the food is very rushed. Venue can do with a bit of a revamp, in such a beautiful environment.

The reserve is absolutely spectacular, especially thinking of the fact that it is at the heart of Pretoria. The game drive was fun and we got to see the lions, buffalo and rhino's amongst the animals. I definitely want to take my son there.

This reserve is amazing and one of favorite places. Really nice family spot and a picnic under the trees at Marais dam a must. There's a variety of wildlife and the chance to see 2 of the big 5 really good. Birdwatchers paradise and ample photographic opportunities in the reserve.

We had a great time last weekend with a leisurely drive around the reserve, a stop-off at the bird hide over the dam, and then a braai at the well maintained, scenic, popular braai spot. From the moment we arrived to the time we left I was continuously impressed by how well managed this park is. The staff were wonderful,... More

Stunning wildlife viewings. One can take the whole family. There are also places that you can hike or go for a horseride. Just outside Pretoria.

I have been there twice and really enjoyed it. It is not only the big animals but the small creatures that are fascinating. There are lots of little places to get out and visit. The tea garden was also very nice. Really worth visiting. Will be back
