    An absolute gem of a game reserve. We spent 4 magical days here and enjoyed every moment. Everything works and the reserve is well run! Will definitely be back!

    Unbelievable experience and one I will never forget! The interactions with the cats were extraordinary! The guides were so informative and engaging! We learnt so much and walked away from the experience with a wealth of knowledge.
    This is definitely something everyone should be able to experience 🫶

    Very informative tour, they have a variety of animals that are well looked after. The kids enjoyed holding a snake and looking at the different reptiles and spiders. They also have a petting zoo which is nice if you have a little one. Our guide was friendly and patient with the kids. The facility is well kept and clean.

    Having read the many good reviews on TA, decided to give this park a visit when stopping at Richards Bay on a Cruise. As we had a large on board credit with the ship & being unable to find an onshore provider to meet our needs, booked through the ship, on their trip which was only a half day safari coupled with a trip to St Lucia wetlands. We had done a Safari some years ago at Yala National Park, Sri Lanka, so we had a fair idea what to expect. First big issue was that our journey from Richards Bay took 2 hours to reach the Park, and what a boring journey it was. On reaching the Park were allocated vehicles which were old Toyota Landcruisers, seating 10; our driver(whose name I now forget) was also our guide.. After a short safety talk, we were on our way, around 10.45am, for what we were told was a 2.5hr Game Drive. It was also explained that the Park was huge( 2 old parks merged into one) about 100,000 hectares and we would only see an area about a 20th of it so their was no guarantee what we would see. We then spent about 1.5 hours chasing round looking for wildlife based on his own knowledge of the Park & what he picked up on the radio. It became quite obvious early on that animal spotting was not going to be easy. We kept to defined routes on tarmaced roads, in quite a hilly region with a lot of thick bush; quite different to what I experienced at Yala. WE saw a lot of animals from a distance; no good for anyone without binoculars, Elephants ,Zebra, various antelope, but nothing close up, other than Water Buffalo, Warthogs & a few Nyala. WE did get close to a couple of Rhino which was about the highlight of our trip. We also saw quite a few birds, Vultures, Buzzards,etc. Around 12.30 we stopped at a picnic area, close to a river where lunch was prepared. Although there was a decent variety, it never looked over appetising, I didn't feel particularly hungry, after a big breakfast, so had just a little. After about 40 mins on our way again, rushing about, but once again, saw little, apart from the same Elephants & Zebra we'd seen earlier in the day, and once again from a distance. Drive finished just after 2pm. then we left to journey to St Lucia. In summary, a disappointing trip and we came to the conclusion the if you want to do Safari properly you need to stay in a Park for a few days and go on early morning or late afternoon drives, otherwise like us its pot luck. The fact was, that our journey to & from the Park was longer than our time in it!!
