It's a National Park so you must have your own car. You must also study the season. Rainy season calls for a four-wheel drive vehicle. The officers are friendly and ready to tell you more.

There are a lot of wild animals to watch and take picture. Then a drive along the lake offers a very magnificent view for nature lover like me. The food are served fresh and the service team are always very friendly.
