“Fantastic”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

We visited the Valley of Desolation and also did the game drive in the Camdeboo National Park included in the price.At 140 rand for the two of us it was great value. The scenery is amazing and we saw various species of monkey,birds,deer and wilderbeest.Don't forget your camera and binoculars!

“Good Park and Views”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

This was a delightful park. The name valley of desolation does not do it justice. The young ranger at the gate was so enthusiatic and pleasant. The views from the top and on the way up are worth the hot walks, which to be fair are not long.
