In contrast to the madhouse at Yala NP, this is a less traveled venue so the roads are not as rutty which makes for a wonderful safari experience. In addition to the abundant bird life one can see elephants and monkeys at close reange.

An excellent tour through this park, only saw 3 other safari jeeps. Knowledgeable guide, saw big mammals, reptiles and a myriad of birds. Definitely more relaxed than Yala and worth a visit.

This national park is much better than Yale. I saw much more animals and there are almost NO people inside (opposite to Yale, which is more like a race, car chasing leopard)
