The chalets are not luxurious, but the typical Sanparks standard; with double bed. If you have noisy neighbours the "longdawels, with two rooms per building are not ideal, as the walls are a bit thin. (or they had they TV on too loud) Obviously great if with friends, as some have connecting doors. Chalet well equipped for self catering. The...

We camped at Glen Reenen with a tent for two days. It was great to open the tent and look out at Brandwag mountain in the morning. The kitchen and bathrooms were clean. The staff warned us about the baboons so we kept our food inside the car. Just be sure to close the bins properly or you will have...

we stayed over on the 16th of April 2017 for one night. Upon checking in to our accomodation I immediately asked reception if we could please have another towel as one towel for two people was not sufficient. I was told that the supervised would be notified. Upon packing up and leaving the next morning at 8:30, housekeeping arrived with...

On a return trip home, we checked in late, but was greeted by a very friendly receptionist who gave us all the info we needed. She was rather enamored with our baby, and took time to engage with him. Out unit was clean and cosy. We've stayed in plenty SANPARKS camps, and this one is by far the best we've...

At reception I was greeted by Jessie who immediately made me feel very welcome. The formalities were completed quickly and efficiently and I was given local maps and an explanation of the park and access to the nearby hotel with dining facilities. The room itself was a well appointed rondaaval with satellite tv, kitchenette and en suite bathroom. Nothing fancy...

Visited a few times, but now in summer; stayed in the 2-bed bungalows, well equipped, awesome views, braai-place! Had a function at their educational services facilities that's for rent to groups- good venue, well-equipped for up to 250 pax! A hotel on-site for the non-self-catering crowd. Great journey here and stay-over in a transfrontier Park!

We were visiting the national park for two days so booked into the Glen Reenen rest camp. The reviews seemed pretty positive so we had no worries. On arrival we were met by friendly staff and given the keys to our 2 bedroom family chalet. The view from our chalet were stunning but the view inside was terrible. The ceiling...

Visiting with extended family, we had 2 rondavel huts for 2 nights. Clean, comfortable and adequately equipped. SA National Parks, at Glen Reenen, are OK but not exceptional. The TV was badly out of tune, no ice tray in the freezer and NO follow up by staff when the shortcomings were reported to reception. The park, walks and the drives...

We stayed over for a weekend getaway at the Glen Reenen Rest Camp. Our accommodation was what you wold expect from SANParks. The Longdawel we stayed in was clean, well maintained and had everything we needed. The only drawback (first world problems) was the parking was a bit far from the longdawel. There was a couple of sour points however....

Really nice camp facilities in the bottom of the valley, with beautiful flat spacious camp sites. Right next to the river with loads of shade, which is great for summer however can be rather cold for winter.
