  • Love this place, so much to do and see both here and in the area. A real treat for nature lovers.
  • Will definitely visit again. Stunning waterfall at end of hike
  • Awesome experience. Be prepared for 2.5 hour return hike. Comfy shoes.
  • Love the quietness of the area. However can be very busy in season. Staff very helpful
  • Not our best Sanparks experience, ablutions weren’t cleaned up to standards, pay for hiking, pay for riversite, pay for electricity, pay per canoe, wow, they are milking it. Wind were horrendous with several tents blown to pieces. Beautiful beautiful area, but the costs are too high.
