Verloren Valei is a closed reserve, so casual visitors can only traverse the tourist route as marked on the map. You will typically need to be accompanied by a guide: it’s thus essential to phone ahead to make sure the reserve is open and that a guide is available.
PLEASE NOTE: Owing to the current wet conditions, no cars are allowed on the reserve – visitors should be prepared to walk from the office
To book a visit, contact the Reserve office on 013 254 8800, or the Reserve Manager, Patrick Serakwana, on 066 0082 292 and 078 5500 489 (phone), 078 550 0489 (What’s App) or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
