We entered the park just after 16:00 (4 pm) on Saturday afternoon and knew we had to be out by 19:00 (7 pm). The guy at the gate was super-friendly. Not unsual for parks people; but nice nevertheless.
We decided to do the circular trip in a counter-clockwise. The next time I might do it in reverse. We saw plenty animals, e.g. springbok, zebra, kudu and oryx. We passed 2 cars going in the opposite direction and were overtaken by another during our 2 1/2 hour trip.
We had planned to see the fossils and the museum at the end of our trip; but as it was getting late, we will have to leave these for the next time.
