If you want to see the diversity of the park I would suggest you growth someone who knows the area and animals. We would have loved the park without a guide but we would not have seen all of the animals without him. Our guide lives in town and goes there all the time so he knows what to look for. I would don't have seen the raccoons napping in the bush or the eyelash viper hiding in the tree trunk. The trail is very easy. Grab some wAter and a small snack outside off the park o the right hand side before you head in and don't forget your bug spray.
Take your time here and enjoy the beauty. Our 6 and 9 year old loved the 3 hours there ;)
