This venue offers touch-farm facilities, a great restaurant that overlooks an active hippo pool, game drives and close-up encounters with a variety of wild and not-so-wild animals, including lions and monstrous tortoises.

I had the opportunity to visit Mpongo Park for a daily excursion and was pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the park. Rivers flowing through with lots of game to view on the drive. If you love nature you will certainly enjoy Mpongo Park.
