A little bit of magic!

Feels like the original forest it is. Boardwalk not the highlight, rather the trails and the close up views of Blue Duiker! Morning best time to visit.

Beautiful forest location. Basic kitchen offer, toilets clean . Prefer soap dispenser and paper towel for hand wash. The walk itself was stunning.

Definitely worth a visit for nature enthusiasts (like ourselves). Had our first sighting of blue duiker here, would never have expected it to be so amazing!!! Entrance R40 per adult and R10 per child. The view from the boardwalk was great, the walks through the forests even better.

I've always wanted to do this as its 1.5 hours drive away from my home and sounds like a great outing. Firstly, try to do this as early as possible as they open at 6 AM if you are keen on seeing birds. I'm not the biggest birder per-se, but take a camera and some binoculars if you can. Right... More

We really had a fantastic time at the boardwalk, it is a magical place! Lovely to have a picnic at the top or somewhere in the forest.

Experiencing the forest from below, within and above the canopy is something one cannot describe. The birdlife was wonderful and managed to tick a lifer, Spotted Ground Thrush, with ease.
