A must visit if you're in the area. Entrance to the park is R50 per person, and well worth considering that you see so many animals in such a short period. We spent two hours there and had seen a white rhino, a group of giraffes and zebra's..and various types of buck. When driving around, best to use a 4x4... 更多
Beautifully located serene nature reserve. We had no problems driving the gravel roads with our 4x2 VW Vivo, but low cars might face difficulties. Entrance is cheap 50R for roughly a 2 hour drive. Saw Eland, Zebra, Impala, Kudu, Blesbok and even the highlight of 3 White rhinos. The entrance is to the Southeast of the park.
If you're in the Central Drakenberg region and a nature lover, include a trip to the Spioenkop Nature Reserve where you can enjoy a tranquil self guided game drive. The vegetation and dam gives you an instant feeling of being in the wild and the game were plentiful and easy to spot. On our trip we saw hordes of antelope,... 更多
When we visited the roads were dry and we had no problems in a non 4x4 vehicle. There was plenty of wildlife to see - impala, wildebeest, kudu, giraffe, mongoose and plenty of zebra. There are no facilities for day visitors, which is a shame. No toilets or refreshments.
Read conflicting reviews about the Spioenkop Nature Reserve (mainly the road conditions) and decided to give it a try. Please DO NOT GO into this reserve if you don't have a 4x4 \ SUV of some sort. I have been to many nature reserves in South Africa with a normal car like I did at this reserve and the roads... 更多
Visiting the Spioenkop game reserve was not the main reason for my visit to the area, but I enjoyed my two game drives on the reserve. One was guide (Spionkop Lodge) and one I did by myself (with my own Toyota Fortuner 2x4). It was no problem to drive the park in my SUV, but I would not recommend to... 更多
excellent drive by Alistair Heron. He was knowledgeable about the reserve and the animals. Helpful as well at the lodge. Limited animal availability on this trip of the animals. It is always a catch 22 when looking for the special wild animals. But we did enjoy the trip. Good experience.
The entry into the reserve was very slow and the person at the gate could hardly speak or understand English. After the entry administration at last completed ,I wanted to pay the R 40, 00 entry fee, but only had R 100, 00 notes and the guard did not wanted to take the note and insisted on the correct amount... 更多
I have been to this small Reserve many times over the years, although the last visit was some 5 years ago. What an unpleasant surprise to witness how this once pristine little gem has been allowed to slide into decline. Reception, information centre, ablution facilities, picnic areas, and roads, ALL in need of upgrade, and general maintenance. Wildlife sightings were... 更多
