“Magic mountain park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014 via mobile

Mountain Zebra NP offers an awesome wild life and scenic experience. Cheetah and Lion roam freely with a wide range of plains game. Never a dull moment. There are 3 great 4x4 only routes as well as the regular roads through the park. The breath taking mountain route Kranskop is a must. Spoil yourself and visit you will not be sorry. This was my third time.

“Perfect stop over”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014

This National Park is well balanced the upper plains are full of game. Well worth a stop over visit on your journey. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. There is a Camp site and family chalets which are clean and comfortable. The recently introduced Lions have increased the Parks popularity so booking for overnight stays is advisable. Day visits are also possible.

We only had a day trip to this beautiful park, but it was well worth it! There is a well stocked shop, and very good restaurant, with very kind and helpful staff. The Park itself is a very delightful place, the roads are good, and the wildlife plentiful. The views are spectacular, and I would thoroughly recommend this place to anyone.

“A Must See!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2014

Really, a must see for any animal lover, nature enthusiast and/or photographer!
A beautiful national park with stunning views and wildlife.

We stayed in one of the houses behind the main building. These are conveniently equipped with a small seating area, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms. We were a bit cold (due to the season) so we bought firewood in the main building and lit a cosy fire in the fireplace. The store in the main building provided everything you needed. The Staff were friendly and the food in the restaurant was good.

Michael, our guide, was brilliant! We saw a lot of local wildlife and we had a lot of fun with him, but he seemed to be looking for something he couldn't find (he kept getting out of the Jeep and searching for a radio signal). At the end of the tour, when we had all returned to the restaurant, we found out what that was as there was a lot of excitement among the staff and Michael yelled "EVERYONE BACK IN THE JEEP", and took off along one of the private roads of the park.

The excitement turned out to be one of the newly introduced Lions, who was lying in the sun and looking at a group of Heartebeast for her breakfast.

We loved our stay and will definitely be back!
