Customer Reviews

I was very impressed with the game drive the tour was amazing and fun and the guide was extremely friendly and kind and gave such a great tour even when we asked a ton of questions he was so ready to answer every question. Such great service. The cat park was disappointing because on the day we were told due to social distancing we won't be able to see the cats being fed and it was what we really wanted to see so I would suggest maybe making a schedule for that or even just for the game drive tourists because we are paying a bit more and also because some of the time we weren't sure where the cats were there wasnt information given or any information up and so that was disappointing because we basically had to figure that out by ourselves. Maybe create social distancing spaces as the amount of people in the park was very little. Furthermore the entire place is quite magical and beautiful and the experience was amazing. I definitely enjoyed it regardless and I would recommend it to anyone. But the big cats area could be improved. - Aeyesha Sardien

The tour of the cats world was exciting, the game drive less so as there is not much of game or a drive to be had. - Makandwe Nyirenda

Our tour guide (George) arrived on time and was very polite and knowledgeable. We (myself and 2 kids) were the only members of the tour, so that was really special. Despite the windy conditions on the day, we had a good time, with George sharing lots of interesting information regarding the antelope. Due to strong gusts of wind, the canopy of the trailer almost blew away but George amanged to secure it using a pair of pliers and wire that he salvaged from a fence - the girls and I were very impressed by his quick action! Due to the windy conditions we asked George to cut our visit a bit short, but it was a fun and eventful outing, which we will do again. - Neil Gribble

My son and I had a lovely game drive. The ranger was very informative and charming. Our birthday month was well spent and thank you once again. We will definitely visit Vredenheim again. - Gwyneth Abrahams

I can without doubt recommend it! It was amazing! - Evette de Klerk
