  • Such a beautiful space. I love driving through the gorge. Nice windy roads with surprise views around every turn.
  • An incredible nature walk with the most beautiful plant life around. We did the Hoopoe Trail about 7km (4hrs total), with a beautiful waterfall at the end.
  • Wonderful experience getting out in nature, beautiful scenic views and lovely rest stops throughout the reserve. Prestine trails, untouched nature. My favourite spot was Hoep Hoep Falls and Leapords Rock. The reserve has so many amenities and activities, I would suggest staying over at least for one night to experience all that Oribi Gorge has to offer. Hiking trails for all levels of fitness.
  • Had a amazing afternoon. Well done
  • Magnificent, awe-inspiring, natural Gorge, minimally disturbed my human escapades. Sight seeing was out of this world. Driving on the edge of these mountains with overhanging cliffs makes you realize how insignificant human beings are in the greater scheme of the genesis of life...
