  • First visit ever on New Year's day, and what a treat. Highly recommended ! Great facilities - braai areas complete with wood, wooden tables, toilets. We saw impala, kudu, wildebeest, zebra, baboons and plenty of interesting birds and bugs. Roads are a bit rough, but very easy in a 4 x 4 or a car with high clearance.
  • Excellent little game park
  • Incredible value. USD 22 for 5 of us to see some game and enjoy a fine picnic among the Msasa woodland and characteristic boulders. If you're in the area you really should stop by.
  • Another wonderful experience
  • Lovely place to be.
