  • Nice and quite. Camping was great - a nice a addition would be to have electric points at the river campsites. Self drive was enjoyable, but numbers of Bontebok and others were disappointing.
  • Bontebok National Park have something for everyone, hiking, fishing, cycling, kayaking and a jungle gym for the little ones. Bontebok National Park have the friendliest staff and very helpful.
