Thought the entrance fee was very reasonable to to the Nature Reserve and the drive was pleasant with lots of wildlife including Giraffe and Zebra. Loved the Suspension Bridge and the views.

This was a fun filled day with the most spectacular views. We did the 14 slide zipline and is was just amazing. Staff at all posts and sites are very friendly and helpful. This is a must see and experience that you will not regret.

Most of the road is tarred, but going into Lake Eland game reserve you will not be able to drive there.
