“A non-event”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

Extremely disappointing experience. Was looking for some serious walking. Purchased a Park Permit (R200), only to find that due to heavy rain the previous day, most walks were considered too muddy to explore. The R200 was refunded without question when we left!

“Nature immersion”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

Canoeing and hiking up to the falls of the park is a nice option if you want to spend a half-day or maybe a whole day in the park. There are lots of birds to see and even some bigger animals (we spotted an impala right in front of us, when walking to the falls. Pretty cool). The hiking trail is totally safe, well built and easy to walk (or even run, if you want). Recommended.

“Amazing experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

Spent longer than required on the Touws river kayak. Kingfishers and Turacos in abundance. Book the 5 hour Canoe - the time is well spent and the hike was pretty decent on a medium level

“Good Hiking and Camping Along the River”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

A great place for seeing Knysna Lauries and other birds near the camp ground by the lovely river. There are 2 good bird hides in the park also. . . King Fishers, Fish Eagles, and all kinds of wading birds are present. . . Great!
