“Great animal viewing”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

This small game reserve is great to explore with small kids. No long hours in the car, but you manage to see amazing animals up close. Loads of giraffe, bok, zebra, and even a rhino. Well worth a visit! Entrance fee is minimal. You can do entire loop of dirt track in 1-1.5 hrs. Drive along to Thokozisa craft centre for lunch afterwards!

“Wonderfull but needs renovation”
Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

The park itself is situated at a wonderfull spot. You find lots of game here. However the accommodation and facilities in the park looks quite old. It needs renovation. I would advice daytrips.

“Average”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Average. Lots of giraffes. Something to do when you are in the Drakensberg. Perhaps a nice place to camp. Big lake.
