Visitor Tips

  • Day visitors are welcome. No bookings are required.
  • As outdoor lighting in the camps is limited, a torch/headlamp is required when walking outside at night.
  • Motorcycles are not allowed. Arrangements can be made with Reception for transport from and to the Main Gate at a fee. This should be arranged in advance.
  • Remember to bring a hat, walking shoes, sun block, camera, binoculars and bird and mammal reference books.
  • Don’t forget to pack comfortable shoes for walking inside the rest camp. Check the sightings board outside Reception before heading out on a game drive to see where the best sightings can be had.
  • Guests participating in walks are reminded to always carry sufficient water.
  • Hospitals, doctors, pharmacies, filling stations, vehicle repair, shops, car hire and police services are available in Beaufort West, about 12km from the rest camp.
  • Pack cool clothing for summer and warm for winter – the area is subject to sudden changes in weather, particularly in the mountains.
  • Keep an eye out for klipspringers on Klipspringer Pass, big herds of eland on the Nuweveld route, tortoises throughout the rest camp. Birding is prolific in the garden at the Interpretive Centre, as well as at the bird hide.
  • Please be aware of the presence of Cape cobra and puff adders if walking in the rest camp. Scorpions are also common in the Park
  • Early morning and late afternoon drives are best to possibly spot the Park’s elusive lions.
  • Keep an eye out for breeding pairs of Verraux eagles (black eagles) near the lookout point on the Klipspringer Pass.
  • Aloes are in bloom during the winter months and are visible throughout the Park.
  • Snowfall on Nuweveld mountain range has been known to occur during very cold winters.
