We urge our guests to plan ahead and always arrive during daylight. Driving at night is in the first place potentially dangerous with the conditions our countries roads are in and driving inside the reserve on the smaller dirt roads between bushes and animals roaming are extremely stressful.

CHECK-OUT TIME: Strictly before or at 10:00.

PLEASE NOTE that although Nyala is only 15km from Hoedspruit town, it is at least a 40minute drive due to the speed limit within the reserve.
