Amazing drive in nature watching all type of animals; beautiful birds - special species! Must see! Lot of Kraters where Buffels and many other animals come to cool down. Really amazing! The views from the ridges of the Craters in the country is really fabulous.

There's a great BBC documentary about how the chimpanzees have become "trapped" in the gorge which is fascinating. But the guides skip over this to present you with an "experience." Unfortunately, the chimps know how to avoid the continuous trips to see them so you're...More

Jaw dropping views and vistas across the savannah, its not over crowded or all that intrusive for animals so it does feel very natural - that may mean less viewings than some of the more established game parks - but it also means you don't...More
