                              Neat place with good site manager. Found it a bit small for 3 people. Also a bit far out to drive.

                              We loved the fact that we had our own space. The view was amazing, and the surroundings were very peaceful.

                              One of the least demanding walks in the Wilderness area, the 5 km Brownhooded Kingfisher Trail follows the meandering course of the Duiwe River. Lush river woodlands line the riverbanks and the path crosses the river frequently. Take care when...
