Spaning the Zuurberg mountains, the Sundays River Valley and the indigenous forest at Woody Cape, this park boasts an impressive 180,000 hectares.
Take your time to spot redhartebeest skipping through the trees, warthogs foraging in the bushes and Kudus standing proud. The real treat comes when a herd of elephants stumble into your path or an inquisitive buffalo appears at the side of your vehicle grunting softly.
