Stunning views - some great photographic opportunities. Beautiful scenery. Infrastructure in the park has been well maintained and toilets were clean. There were still some flowers in late October. Nice variety of wildlife to see

We visited here a couple of times whilst staying in Langebaan. The whole park is beautiful with nice bird hides and plenty to see if you give it time. Yes there is an entrance fee but well worth it. Recommended.

Loved the views. Didn't see much animals though I guess our timing wasn't great and they had closed the flower section of the park. Overally the park is well maintained and with enough time one is able to see a lot.

We have been there early September and the park was beautiful: So many colorful flowers in front of the sea. There is also a nice restaurant in the park. Plan a day trip from Cape Town for a visit. A must see!
