Guided bush walks lasting three-four hours inside the park in Big 5 territory are available on request. Visits into the local Mpembeni Community and "Sangoma" can be arranged. The Centenary Capture Centre & Museum situated near Nyalazi Gate are well worth a visit. For those wanting rest and rejuvenation, the in-house Organic Spa has magnificent views over the reserve and not only benefits guests but also the local community.
