  • It was raining the night before and during the day, so we only saw elephants, buffalo and some lovely birds including peacocks, but the safari experience was great  more »
  • There were a lot of tourists, first stood in line at the cash desk, local climb without a queue and eventually all. Tickets vary, one worth 4 k with something, for 2-7 k, the more people in the car-the cheaper. + cost of the machine-we paid 4500, from hotel to hotel regardless of the number of people (maximum 6 people per car). Us pestering one guy offered for 10 k for two organize everything, but then in the car it would be 6 people that we would definitely besilo. (see below) As we stopped at the Park saw 2 elephants, and here are all the cars lined up in rows and 2 stand and photographed these poor elephants. All the machines stop at every Bush, every bird, every Peacock and each place where once was an animal. And all are photographed. We are not lovers of 1001 pictures, therefore, asked the driver just go straight and stop only at the elephants or any other interesting animals. Elephants are very pathetic. See an elephant and immediately surround it. One elephant RAN AWAY and hid in the bushes and when it published the sounds that I resembled the fear. 6 or 7 cars around him, all the noise, it is not surprising that the kid was scared. Drove past ponds, somewhere far, far away there was a crocodile (seen through binoculars). Of course all stopped and tried something out there floating. The problem is that sometimes the machine involved in 2 rows, so just go and not have to wait. A lot of peacocks, but heck, if even a little drive from the beach, these peacocks can simply meet in the fields. Many birds, but they are not very interesting to me. Nature, too, is not impressed. All in all very dubious pleasure.

  • Easy to access, not too crowded and lots of different birds. We saw a wolf, fox, lots of elephants and about 20 crocodiles. It's a relief not to be part of a 50 jeep onslaught like we experienced in K...  more »
