Drove around for an hour, saw nothing. Probably all been poached. Bad attitude of staff. Not worth the effort

This is a delightful place for a family to picnic and enjoy nature. The paths were well cleared when we were there and the picnic areas clean and tidy. We saw zebra and buck and enjoyed being at one with nature.

This park is a fantastic retreat from the city. It's small, and has seen better days: the roads aren't in great condition, and the education centre clearly hasn't been used in years. However, this doesn't make a difference to the visit: it's clean, safe, and...More
