    Ond visit 3 hours was a huge success, even though we eventually just have seen no Leopard, nl. only the paw prints. It was neat driven and you have plenty of time to take pictures. We saw there sloth bears, 1 elephant, crocodile, all kinds of deer, birds of prey, dozens of bird species, 1 h, monkeys, peacocks, roosters, 1 type of Mongoose and much more. It is there for a very long time dry, so the animals sit at the water reservoirs. Fantastic experience. There were quite a few jeeps, but that was certainly not disturbing.
