Beautiful scenery, especially overlooking the Spioenkop dam. Unfortunately many of the roads are in bad shape due to erosion. Did one hike, but the path was very overgrown with lots of weeds that sticks to clothes. Basically maintenance is urgently required. Saw quite a few...More

It is a nice place, just a bit run down. I would suggest going in the morning or late afternoon. But we went in the middle of the day and still saw Wild beast, meerkats, verities of deer, and giraffes. So only not the Rhinos...More

Beautifully located serene nature reserve. We had no problems driving the gravel roads with our 4x2 VW Vivo, but low cars might face difficulties. Entrance is cheap 50R for roughly a 2 hour drive. Saw Eland, Zebra, Impala, Kudu, Blesbok and even the highlight of...More
