The tour guide was very knowledgeable. It was cool, cloudy, and rainy perfect for active animals and photography. Highly recommend.

One of the most fun and interesting places we have ever stayed. The accommodations in the tent were way above expectations--a real "glamping" experience. There was a lot of room, the bathroom was large, and the bed was comfortable. It got chilly at night but...More

We stayed in a one room cabin that was very comfortable. They are not fancy accommodations but they are clean and roomy. Do not know much about the cottages. I am thinking they would be nice to stay in.

No, not at all. It just licked the perimeter but nothing happened in the park and all animals were safe. There is no fire damage in the park.
