Overnight? Stay at accommodation in Nelspruit, in Mpumalanga

When the full extent of your historic knowledge has been shared with much love and patience and you simply do not know the next answer to the line of continuous 'Why?'s being fired in your direction from someone who takes you up to the knees... visit The Dinosaur Park.

Here you will stand below the knee-height of life-size dinosaur models in a museum of life. Replica's of reptiles will keep an enquiring mind alive despite the extinction of your wisdom. Pre-historic creatures that roamed the earth over a 100 million years ago visually explain the history of the planet without the causalities and age restriction of a Jurassic Park feature.

Situated in a lush real life sub-tropical garden with giant cabbage trees and cycads growing wild as part of the splendid forest, living monkeys play amongst the lifeless ancestors. Wander amongst open jawed statues of long named carnivores in toothy tackles while sub-tropical birds tweet overhead, happy as a species that survived evolution.

Artistic displays portray scientifically accurate representations of the development of life through the different ages. History is resuscitated through the skeletons of amphibians and homo sapians and the 'footprints' of dinosaurs. "Austrolopithicus africanus" is represented by forms of Mr. & Mrs. Pless, million year old southern apes who spark intense debates of mankind's origin.

The local Cape Lion and Cape Quagga, extinct for almost a century, are hosted as models amongst samples of extinct mammals, a 3m long Nile Crocodile and pre-historic man. 2.2 billion year old Collenia, ancient plant colonies, fossils prove plant life thrived in an atmosphere of only carbon dioxide and nitrogen. An educational and fascinating experience for visitors of all ages.
