We saw a number of animals in the reserve: rhino, spring buck, eland, wildebeest, red harte bees, squirrel, ostrich, blesbok and more. Definitely a place to visit.

Fantastic small reserve with an abundance of bird life and mammals. Many reviews have stated only seeing a small number of animals but it really depends, you can get lucky and see many cool animals ( have seen snakes, secretary birds, Nile monitors, snake eagles, eland, waterbuck, buzzards, buffalo, rhino etc etc) definitely worth going more than once. It’s also nice to drive around at your own pace and we have 2 young children!!! Coffee shop is average but kids love the rest and the wilderbeast climbing frames.

Went for a game drive but we mostly saw ostrich and zebras. We were told that they also have cheetahs but unfortunately we could not spot one. The drive is a sigh of fresh air as you connect with nature. The dams are a spectacular sight.

Just do not visit the Coffee shop! Worst cappuccino and food I had in a while. This is a small reserve but has some nice spots and you can get close to some animals. Mainly Zebras so don’t get too excited. However there is rhinoceros...
