  • Hi Cape Town Chic,

    I’d really love to spend my new years eve and new years day at this nature reserve. I have tried to call the numbers provided to find out if the place will be open but no luck. Is Oudekraal open on NYE and New years day? If so, what times?

    • Hey Lauren,
      Just so you know, I don’t work for SanParks so my notes are just my own conclusions 🙂
      The website says “This site is open weekends and public holidays irrespective of the season. ” So I think it will be open both days.
      But remember it closes around 6pm so I don’t think you’ll be able to be there after dark.
      Good luck 🙂

        Hi there – thanks for the info. I went there this morning at 8am and at 8.40 it was still closed so I left – a lot of other families were also waiting at the gate. The signs say it’s open 8am-6pm on public holidays. Also when I drove past last week on a regular day at 5pm it was closed. Do you know who I can call to find out their opening times? I cant find the opening times on the website.

        Thanks – appreciated!

      Hi…i would like to have my wedding reception at oudekraal for 200 guest… Is this at all possible…just to braai there. What is the cost for such event.I have tried many times to enquire at the gate and phoned the number given but to no avail.Please assist.Thank You.

      • Hi Max, I guess there’s no law that would prohibit you just arriving with 200 guests.
        But it’d likely have to be very early in the morning so you can snap up all the braai areas!
        There isn’t an actual venue there that’s constantly open, so I think that’s why you struggle to get hold of people.
        Unfortunately, I don’t work for SanParks so I can’t formally give you any advice, this is just my opinion.
        Good luck!

    It would have been better to encourage people to abide by the rules, instead of encouraging people to be break them.
    Abuse is certain to follow.
    Too many places are in ruins and have become oftentimes terrible to visit due to such compromises.

    • I hear you Chris, but I’m a realist.
      If “no” worked, no one would ever be breaking the laws and this would be Switzerland!
      I think it’s important to give people to choice to the do right thing.
      Thank you for reading my post and for sharing your sentiments, I do appreciate your input 🙂

    Is alcohol allowed what about the music

    • Hi Nzwaki,
      Booze and music is not allowed.
      However, if you arrive with some champagne for sunset, I doubt they will stop you.
      Oudekraal is not a camp site or festival grounds, it’s part of a nature reserve so that needs to be respected.
      Having said that, if you bring along a SMALL speaker – like one for an iPhone, I’m sure the guards will leave you alone.
