“Elephants, crocs and abundance of birds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014 via mobile

A fantastic wetland and salt marsh national park. We visited the park as it was reputed to be the best park to see many species of bird life and were not disappointed. What a wonderful surprise to see other wildlife too, including a family of elephants, crocodiles, wild boar and monkeys. Our guide was excellent as was the jeep driver. Well worth the entrance fee and the 4.30 a.m. start to get there at sunrise.

Very knowledgeable guide. Evidence that tourists' fees are being reinvested in facilities and conservation. And of course stunning birds.
