The tour was not only informative but the humour of our host was a pleasant extra. We visited the museum and that really brings home how our actions effect the wildlife.

Reviewed By Loren S - Johannesburg, South Africa

The thought of getting up close and personal with an animal which has been recorded as the most dangerous animal, killing the most human beings statistically was pretty daunting...But laying eyes on the mighty Jessica and hearing her story being told with so much heartfelt emotion, made any level of fear or anxiety totally dissipate.
It was an absolutely awesome experience being able to feed, stroke and actually kiss this magnificent creature! An absolute must-do in the Hoedspruit area!

Mapungubwe National Park

Reviewed By JAKTracks - Roodepoort, South Africa

Camp site 4 or 5 must be one of the nicest with the big Nala Tree providing shade, the park is split in two. A western and eastern side, on the eastern side you can see the confluence of the two rivers with Botswana and Zimbabwe in the back ground. There is also a tree top walk among Fever trees. On the western side which seems a lot more wilder we saw plenty elephants, the area is small and may take 1,5 hours to drive through, there also a very nice hide where you could spend a lot of time.
Don't forget to visit the Museum to see the golden rhino.
