Brilliant, maps are easy to read and loads of wildlife seen. It was a wrench to leave the reserve. We took our own food as the cafe was closed.
Make sure you are full with fuel and give yourself plenty of time.

Large game park this close to Johannesburg. We saw three of the big 5 quite easily but missed the cats. Well worth the visit - recommend staying inside the reserve at one of the lodges if possible.

Could spend a few days just driving around and looking for the huge number of wild animals in the reserve. really excellent loads to look at and to watch for.
We only had half a day and only went a very short distance. Go early and spend the day even stay at lodge within the reserve and start again the next day.

The trackers that take you on the game drive make it so interesting. They are incredibly knowledgeable. We would definitely do it again

There hasn't been rain in quite a while and there was a considerable amount of dust. The advantage was that the animals had to congrigate close to the watering holes.
