  • Considering the beauty of the reserve, it has amazing spots. The river coast and #camping worth it. About the game-drive it was very poor regarding #wildlife.

Using guide service is mandatory to visit the park and Ibrahim was great and very kind to us. The gate/reception guards were totally arrogant and lazy. Actually they were the worst part of this park
  • Really worth a visit, the animals are back at the Park
