It has been a very long time since I blogged, as we have literally been snowed under - between wonderful school bookings last year, and a crazy festive season, we are just now
able to stop and come up for air - and some new developments! We have re-designed and landscaped our grounds and they are truly starting to look wonderful....lovely green lawns
flow into pretty garden beds thanks to our new and talented gardener, Solly. As our big dam fills with water irises and reeds, it can only enhance the appearance of
Hazyview's main road as we strive to add to our little town's appeal. We are so fortunate to be located where we are - not only are there lots of other things to do in the area
which makes a trip from Nelspruit or surrounds a whole day affair, but wildlife abounds - we are not just reptile people, but animal people so we were thrilled to bits when we
found not just one, but two, genets hiding in the tree above our tortoises! Guinea Fowl over the fence, loads of birdlife, all of this enhances our appeal as an attraction which
you really shouldn't miss!
We have added new show times (see on the website under "visitor info"), and are in the process of having our well received app translated into other languages - I think that will make us the
most accessible reptile park in the country, and hopefully the most educational as well! Additional information panels to add to your understanding of the mysterious creatures
in our care will be on the forefront of technology as they incorporate QR codes to give the tech savvy visitor access to a whole new world of information! So don't forget to download
the app via the website (see our homepage) prior to your visit, and make sure you have a QR reader (available free from ALL app stores) installed and ready to go - you just need
to be linked to the internet with your smart device.
If you have visited us over this last couple of months and enjoyed your visit please stop by Tripadvisor and write us a review! So many people tell us how much they love the park,
but we are sitting with only 47 reviews - the more we get, the further we move up the list and the more people that will visit, making it possible for us to continue growing. So don't just tell US how good you think we are, tell the world! Our dream is to be not only the biggest reptile park in the country (which we believe we are) but the benchmark for all other reptile parks to aim for!
