We had a super guide who is a fabulous spotter, so managed to see many of the animals the park is famous for. Highly recommended.

We were lucky and saw a lot of animals: various birds, monkeys, deer and even a bear and two leopards. However, the whole tour is a bit long. After two hours it's just more of the same and the rickety jeep is not a pleasure...More
