Everything from our well appointed cottage, friendly and helpful staffand seeing the mountain zebras in the wonderful scenic setting of the park made our visit most enjoyable.

Tara Forster

It was really a great stay. We love this park. Just a pity that the geyser dripped constantly during the night...It drove me nuts...

Hendi Krog

Although we did not see many animals, probably because of the heat, the scenery and accommodation made the trip and stay worthwhile. The Karoo evenings alone are worth the visit.
