Customer Reviews

An experience for a zebra loving child with friendly and knowhow l knowledgeable guide. - Tracy

Lovely experience, wonderful farm and amazing staff. Although Game drive did not have much of variety of animals, it was tranquil and the guide was absolutely amazing! - mauricia cox

The Park was amazing, from the food, to the Cat Park and Game drive was informative and great. The Staff are exceptionally wonderful and very knowledgeable. I can't wait for my family to be in CPT to bring them to your Park. Thank you for a great time. - Indeira Rambath

We much enjoyed the day at Vredenheim - the gardens are beautiful, the food was delicious and the staff were super friendly. The game drive however was a big disappointment and actually a bit of a joke. We were taken behind a tractor to a field on the other side of the road to the estate where we found mostly guinea fowls, about 50 springboks and a handful of other antelopes. Halfway in the field we stopped and received a basket with cheese, crackers, water and a glass of wine and after a great talk with our guide George (who is genuinely very knowledgeable and was a very welcome addition to the experience), we drove back again across the road. To be fair to future guests, please call it what it is - a tractor ride to view some great species of antelopes. The tour of the cats was also made special because of the expert knowledge of George. Beautiful as the cats are, I am not sure if they belong in the wine route setting. - Mar-Loes Mantoua

Wonderful service and hosting. It was a very pleasant experience. Loved it!! - Stephanie Adams
