Owner description: Giant maze in a maize(corn) field. 3.5km of pathways, themed on the 'World under your feet', this is a challenge for all ages. Fun general knowledge quiz to test everyone. Courtyard area has other smaller puzzles and games to keep you entertained.
Reviewed 6 April 2018

We travelled 40 mins in an uber based on tripadvisor reviews. The gate was open and we went in. We waited 15 minutes at the entrance to pay for entry and buy a drink and got completely ignored by the two men in there, one of whom was wearing a honeydew mazes tshirt. To be honest, it looked less than amazing and 150ZAR seemed a steep entrance fee, so we cut our losses and left. Or tried to...locked in now and had to search for someone to let us out. Apparently only open at weekends. Probably worth pointing out the seasonality of the place - the maize is currently very short, making the maze rather unexciting looking.

I am sorry you were inconvenienced.
Our website, and the sign at the gate, quite clearly states, that we are only open for casual visitors at the week-ends and public holidays. During the week, we are open for corporate events and schools, which are pre-booked and pre-paid.
We are not 'seasonal' and have 2 giant mazes, one of which is completely hidden from the courtyard area.
The only staff here, were our gardening staff, who have no responsibility for the maze. The gate was not open, it was opened to let in a delivery, and you chose to walk in without permission.
We are currently not in that that maze, so actually, you have no comment on the maze experience.

Great activity for the kids and adults alike. Good test of general knowledge and direction. Nice area to have a picnic and cool drink afterwards with plenty of shade.
Take hats, sunscreen and water. (can buy there).
Nice way to pass a morning with the family!

Only opens at 10:00, but the staff were very friendly when we arrived.

We visited in September. After a few months without rain, it's a bit dry and dusty, but it was still a fun morning out. Take hats and sunscreen. If you forget sunscreen, there are a few free bottles that you can use. A great idea!

The little cafe is very convenient: snacks, water and coldrinks. Also some ice creams for a hot day like today.

The staff at the maze know it really well and are helpful.

Everyone was very friendly.

Thank Brent B

Spend a few hours working your way through the elemental maze and playing on some activities outside. Staff needs some passion to make it more exciting.
