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.
