As usual, another Sanparks camp that is well run and quite reasonable, i.e. R300pn for two. Excellent facilities. The Falls and surrounds are awesome. However, the baboons and monkeys are a real problem, always on the prowl and looking for opportunities to take your food. Campers need to be vigilant at all times.

Report Check-In

Better to see the falls after rany season but there are several things to do in the park, like hiking, game viewing or discovering some beautiful lookouts of that impressive gorge.

Report Check-In

There is few water at this moment. Disapointing when you saw pictures of the falls before.

This is a great place to stop overnight. There is nice green grass in the camp site but you can’t camp on it!😳. Watch the monkeys and baboons because they are so brazen. A monkey entered my van while I was right beside it and at another time I was inside with the bottom half of a stable door closed when a baboon tried to come in over the door😳. The walks are great, we did the Arrowhead and the Dassie walks and enjoyed both. The restaurant is not very good and the staff are lazy and quite rude. The staff in reception, the park rangers and the shop staff were lovely. We paid to R253 per night for two people for a powered site.

I really liked the campsite at the end of the camping area, the sound of the falls, a hot shower, some monkeys to keep me alert on leaving food out, its been really nice staying here. Laundry is R15 a load, the shop sells all the basics and the falls are spectacular!

Report Check-In

The falls are nice.

But what I did enjoy much more was the dazzie hiking trail. Maybe ask at the reception about the water level, when I was there some of the “bridges” have been slightly under water ... then you will get wet feet. Keep this in mind.

Also super nice is the game drive through the park and this fantastic rose quartz mine. In my opinion worthwhile to do the big circle through the park. You will not find predators, but still a lot of game.
