This park is a real experience. We stayed at tlopi tented camp and loved it. The camp site is set on a dam at the base of the majestic waterberg mountains with incredible views. We even saw a pride of lions across the dam from our deck. The tents are private and have lots of space. The staff at reception are helpful and friendly. We were privileged to be able to book a game drive with Sydney. He is by far the best guide I have ever had. He is knowledgable and friendly and genuinely loves the animals and nature. He took us on a great tracking experience and we found the elephants. We then had an up close interaction with an elephant. It was a priceless moment. If you are at the park make sure you go on a drive with Sydney. The park is large and we completed it over 3 days. I think that's the perfect amount of time to visit. The bontle camp site looked like it may have needed a revamp however I can't comment on it as I did not stay here. This place is a true gem!
