Well worth the trip. Even though we were there in winter the weather was mild with the sun shining. We all had a fantastic time with kids plunging into the secluded pools. Clean braai facilities and a friendly guard made this a highlight of our...More

The ideal spot for a picnic lunch with the family. Awesome shady spots with braai facilities, wooden tables and chairs, on the banks of the river where the kids can play in the pools. Fantastic spot.

Good fun for a warm summers day. Pack a picnic/braai and have a relaxing day at the pools! There is braai grids. Just take charcoal/wood. Clean bathrooms as well. R20 entrance.

A good time spent at the pools saw most kids enjoying some splatter. Although signage and parking is not very adequate the sights are quite good to view and take pics.

Lovely tranquil spot, which could have been really nice. We went on a Tuesday ( not sure it's relevant ) and place really busy with families washing, bathing, picnicking and praying. Spoilt the ambience somewhat
