Beautiful surroundings, fields filled with small game like antelope and wildebeest. Birds and eagles, scenery is awesome. Hanging bridge and bungee jumping all for the adventurer. A must visit place.

The zip line here is great, whether you choose the longer slower zip line or the shorter faster one. Views are incredible, and staff are awesome. Take your time as they say and see some of the game around the reserve, just enjoy the time.
