We had a glass of fizz on arrival, then a fabulous breakfast, then a three hour safari, had amazing views of some animals and not so amazing views of others, but as the animals aren't in cages you take what you get on the day! My son did this trip a week before us, and his photos of most of the animals were fantastic. Half way round the Safari we had another glass of fizz, then returned to a lovely lunch. We sat by the pool until our pick up time to return us to our apartments! The elephants wandered down to the watering hole opposite the swimming pool! On leaving the Reserve there were Baboons sitting on the road. Thomas B 17-Nov-2016 This was a wonderful tour with a chance to see all the key wild animals in a natural setting. The fact that the park is dedicated to healing and caring for animals illegally trapped is an added plus. pattik 01-Jul-2016 A truly awesome experience. Wonderful memories. xx Terry 01-Apr-2016 Outstanding! This group is doing great work with the animals! We were So close up! We have Wonderful pictures! Kudos to the wonderful staff who prepared breakfast and our lunch. The best food in South Africa! Andrew B 16-Mar-2016 Amazing, although a game reserve with fencing, all of the animals had acres of space to wander around, for a day trip if you dont have to time to do a full on safari, this is it, be prepared to get up early though, 5.30am start from Cape Town City and camps bay area, Please wait...
