This place provided an enchanting experience. The animals were incredibly nearby, and the surroundings were breathtaking. We encountered a wide variety of animals, including a lion, which brought tears of happiness to our eyes.

Visiting this national park illustrates the remarkable harmony between animals and humans. Even if you only have a brief layover, as we did, I strongly recommend not missing out on a safari adventure.

We spent four hours inside the park and were genuinely captivated by the magnificent African wildlife.

If you have a bit of time to spare, visit this park! The number of animals you can see here is astonishing considering how close it is to the city.
We took a half day tour and found all of the animals we were hoping to see. Lions, black and white rhinos, hippos, crocodiles, zebras, impala, eland, masai giraffe and much more.
I also counted over 50 different species of birds including white-backed vulture and secretary bird. Two species I hoped to see.
