The park is a great place to visit, especially on a MTB to do a circular route around the park. The going is tough in some place with a poor road surface especially if the wind is blowing. However, if you want distance in a safe enviroment, this add this to your tick-off list while visiting the park.

We had a great afternoon here - herds of beautiful Bontibok and Red Heartybeast (not sure if I've spelt that correctly?).

Dirt roads and big sky country - great fun and a fab trip. :-)

I think this is not realy a National park. Very small area with not much to see. Pricy and no service from staff. Not worth visiting. A waste of a tourists time.

Picnic was great...there are braii (BBQ) facilities on the river bank as well, not to be missed for a few hours esp if you have kids!

We went for a nice walk in a deserted part of the park; it was very peaceful, although we didn't see much wildlife apart from the very beautiful bontebok
