An amazing little place. Cycle , walk or take a drive. There is so much to see, from dung beetles to sable antelope and giraffes.

We go there every weekend to go hiking or cycling. Very unique in accessibility, scenery and safety! One actually see game and experience nature very close to the city. Safe to hike, cycle, picnic or just game drive. A good escape from everyday routine!

This is a hidden gem, right in the city of Polokwane, there a lot of animals to see, you drive in your car or even cycle in there. It is also very cost effective.
