The road is in good condition, the look-out points clearly marked. It is worthwhile to visit. Apart from the rock formations, the views are amazing, especially in the late afternoon sun.

Beautiful, scenic place to enjoy the sunset. There is a small walk to get up to the viewsite. There is also a little hike at the top. Its a must see if you are in the area.

Have-to-stop if you are in Graaff-Reinett. Take a walk with the paths and see the most amazing views.

I took my sister to the Valley because she had never seen it. I have been many times but to see it again through her eyes was wonderful. It never disappoints.

Magnificent views and the perfect place for sundowners. There's a short, easy walk to the best viewing point.

What an experience.. certainly not to be missed. We saw the sunset but should have gone earlier and spent more time in the Valley.

Breathtaking natural beauty

It's a special natural environment worth visiting. Take a picnic and experience the silence. There are some buck in the reserve and it is only a 20 minute drive outside the town.
