None available in the nature reserve that I am aware of. There is accommodation at Rietvlei Dam adjacent to the nature reserve.

Highlights /photo opportunities

Rhino/ Cheetah/ Buffalo/ Various antelope – including Eland. Reserve is mostly open grassland so seeing game is relatively easy

Some hides are available which overlook water and reeds so birds are plentiful
