Closest encounter to zebras I've ever experienced. Park is quiet and well maintained. Trail walk is so relaxing. Kids enjoyed the space and braais are allowed on site. Staff helpful and friendly.

I, with a large group of friends visited the nature reserve last Sunday for a braai. The staff were attentive and polite. The site we chose was clean including dirt bin. The fireplace was in a good state of repair. The site tap worked too. There were some Zebra and Buck around. Overall a pleasant experience.
