  • We so enjoyed our first visit to this beautiful reserve - particularly the abundant rhino. Can't wait to return.  more »
  • It's a nice park in which the big five is spotting. Definitely worth it. A must is also ' the neighbour '; Savannah horse Trial. There you can ride around the area under the expert management of Carla on horseback.
