  • This is a very nice park, a must in my opinion, to all travelers to Tanzania. You can find most of the big animals here like elephants, giraffes, baboons, zebras, buffaloes etc. When you take a break to eat your meal, watch for the monkeys because you can loose your food.
  • Excellent safari. By far best one we have been on. We got so close Highly recommendable
  • Beautiful park with abundance of wild animals: lions, giraffes, cheetahs, elephants, boars, impalas, gnus, zebras, buffalos, you name it! You don't even have to drive further than a couple of miles from the entrance. All the roads are unpaved, so be ready to be shaken a little and for the dust. The park also has a few very nice picnic areas with restrooms.
  • Absolutely wonderful experience! My first time in a safari. We didn't have to go far from the reception to encounter an amazing collection of animals I've only seen on TV. Highly recommended!
  • Beautiful nature and a safe Elephant park, though last time I did not get that close. It is not ideal for a one-day visit, as the chances to see lions, cheetahs and leopards gets very small. It is simply too large.
