The roads were diabolical, our cars got scratched by the devil thorns poking into the roads. The main office was closed, looked like an abandoned town and there was animal feces everywhere near the offices.

Ideal to do when you stay at Ardmore. Nice reserve, only an hour drive from the Guesthouse. Also a visit you can do of the battle field Spioenkop.

What an experience! We saw the beautiful giraffe, and quite a few other animals! The ablutions were also top class. Well worth the drive around!

This nature reserve is quite dense with a few animals which we spotted like the springboks. This reserve is in a very remote area .It's along side the Spioenkop Dam.
