We spent two days in the park, including one guided sunset game drive. We would have loved to do a guided mountain bike or walking trip too, but these were unfortunately not available during our stay. The management of the park is less professional than...More

An amazing little national park. An important ecological area with incredible biodiversity. Loads of animals to see, in particular the white rhinos. They offer game drives in open vehicles, highly informative walks as well as mountain bike excursions. The accommodation is amazing especially the rondavels,...More
