  • The Crew were amazing. They made me feel safe, assured and gave everyone the encouragement they needed to jump off the cliff. The gorge itself is one of the most scenic and beautiful places to spend.....  more »

  • One of the beauties of our Country! Amazing views! Lots of activities and wildlife on site. This place is tranquil and the suspension Bridge is crazy but soo exciting. Well worth the entrance fee. Best to keep a whole day aside to view all of its beauty.
  • Went as a day visitor and was pleasantly surprised at how good the park is. Tons of activities to do from hiking to zip lines to fishing. Definitely a good place to take kids Staff were friendly and the park was very clean. Camping sites look very inviting on the dam, will definitely be back for a longer stay
  • Quiet, clean, peaceful connection with old fashioned nature; trees a-plenty, lovely mountain stream. Adam & Eve could have lived there once. Perfect when I was there, but thankfully, no others with animals or bratts.
  • Oribi Nature Reserve is like we refer to as our 'Secret forest'. It's a lush and beautiful place to explore. Even just driving through the place, you can experience the beauty and peacefulness of nature. The trees and cliff surround you. Truly beautiful. Located close to Oribi Gorge. Ideal place to visit for a day excursion
  • An absolute must, if you're in the area. The Zip line is brilliant. Staff very accommodating and helpful.
