“Great Park, Shame about RHINO”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2012

Stayed 2 Nights at Protea which was lovely but looking a bit run down. Food was plentiful but a mix of Lovely and bad. Ie Tough fatty lamb, Great chicken on a stick.
Staff at breakfast rude and miserable especially mitre di

Park very spacious and natural but in 3 days 4 zebra, 5 Giraffe, 20 Elephants, 6 wild dogs, 4 female Lions. NO RHINO which is due to the cruel hunting and Poaching of these lovely animals. There horn is hacked off and the animal left to die, for the Chinese Market which is very sad.

“Not the best area for game drives.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

The few times I went tothis area I saw very little game except 1 sharp grysbok,but no predator. A lot of termite mounds and some beautiful landscapes.
