The reserve is vast and unspoilt while being only 40 kilometres from Maputo. Drove through on the way back from my trip to inhaca island. You will definitely need a 4x4 to get through the sandy roads, but it is great fun

It was a nice park but we saw elephants from about 1000 m away. Such a long way to go to see very few animals. I went to Kruger the day before and there we saw so much more.

Relatively wide area with plenty of spieces and you can meet all of them in half a day. Though, there are no predators, still beware of hippos, crocs and elephants - it is their territory and you're not welcome there. Averall, a good place to spend a day, especially with kids. Also, be prepared to polish the car from the bush scratches. Will do another 2-day trip with overnight stay on the beach.

The reserve is enormous. Getting there was made easy by the tour group; however, much of the park had experienced a fire and the wildlife was scarce. After about 2-3 hours of driving around the reserve, we finally saw an inspiring herd of elephants. Yes it was worth the time lost to see the elephants, but it did take a very long time, again due to the fires. In general it was okay and attending actually helps improve the reserve then it's worth it.

Waste of time and money. This reserve has barely any animals. Did not see any elephants or giraffes. Ride is bad, the 4x4 bus got stuck in the sand multiple times. You spend 4 hours by a lake doing nothing and the rest of time is just a painful ride. Definitely not what is advertised to be.
