These offer 360° panoramic views of the area as well as the Swartberg Mountains. “We call it Bush Safaris, as our guides are trained to not only educate our guests on our wide variety of animals, but also about our bird and plant species..” – Andries van Schalkwyk | Managing Director

Bush Safari . lots of animals in natural habitat
Jan 2020
OK, it wasn't Kruger, it is a small, private reserve 1/20 the size.
It does make a huge effort to home a lot of endangered animals and for that it is wonderful.

There is not a zoo feel to the bush safari, as you see animals grazing in their natural habitat. The animals are cared for and happy.

Half way through the adventure, they pull over and we got out of the jeep and were treated to water, ice tea, and beer.

Very informative and a lot of fun.

Fantastic time on game drive
Dec 2019 • Friends
A group of 4,2 couples, went on the afternoon game drive and it didn’t disappoint. With a knowledgeable guide - Katherine - who drove us we saw springboks, giraffes, Cape buffalo, rhino, meerkat, Nyala , grey roebuck and a glims of eland. The two hours flew by and the blankets came in handy as the wind was quite bitter. The views were stunning. Would highly recommend if you are in the Oudtshoorn area.
