When you enter the road uphill you will find very big tortoises in the road. Some you need to shift them to pass. On top of the mountain at the view point you got a nice clear view over Graaf-Reinette.

It is not a park for game watching per se but lacks nothing on natural beauty! There are breathtaking views, abundance of flora and exciting roads (4x4 is best) through the park. Living in South Africa, for the first time I met up with skittich...More
