    If you have a boat, this is a lovely place to visit. Pack a picnic basket, get on your boat and explore the dam while you sip on your cola. If you do this you will certainly be rewarded with wildlife coming to drink water. Remember the sunscreen and hats. If if gets windy, head for the jetty. This is not a dam to be misjudged when a storm strikes.

    We had the opportunity to visit Mbidi Resort while in we were in the area. The restaurant in my opinion served a better variety of food and it was very tastefully prepared. The staffs were very friendly and our waiter Solly was most helpful. We enjoyed our time viewing the animals and reptiles but the most memorable one is our time spent with Maxi the baby tiger cub.

    The bird park does not have alot to offer for adults. There are very few bird species in the park. Mostly different chicken species, pair of parrots, pair of cockatoos, pair of bush babies, pair of Squirrels and a pair of baby crocs. Two black swans, they are beautiful. The park is suitable for toddlers and children up to the age of 5-6.
    There is a restaurant and a playground for children. Definitely a kiddies paradise.

    There was a fire at the market in June / July 2018. Nothing has been cleaned up or renovated. Waste of time. 2 ladies selling African bead works. Waste of time going there unless they rebuild the place

    The four of us drove from Middelburg past Doornkop informal settlement to the Zip X site. The road is a little rough, but we managed to get to the venue with a Suzuki Swift.
    At the reception we were greeted by Thys, the owner. He showed us around and offered us water and soda.
    The instructor explained the procedure and we were all fitted with a harness with a matching helmet and gloves. You can also rent camera equipment to film your experience.
    Just outside the gate we got ready for the first Zip. That is number one of seven. I was hooked to the cable after the first instructor Zipped to the next platform. The first zip was slow, just to get used to it. After that it went faster and longer.
    The instructors took good care of us. All the way to the bottom. At the last platform, Thys waited for us with is 4x4 bakkie. He offered us ice cold water and then we drove back to the reception area. Here we bought some cold drinks and waited until the legs stopped shaking. There are card facilities available for payments. What a good experience it was. We will be back. Thanks Zip X!
