Went there with our bunch and was a great experience, we were all taken in by the thrill of the big 5. Unfortunately we didnt book the elephant ride and we found they were out. $70 per adult ride.

Was interesting but facilities were tired and limited and if you are able to see them roaming free on a safari then give it a miss.

Peter, Depending on the season, and if you are a tourist. It is best to to travel with someone from that country because they get special prices. But no matter what, go for it, you will not regret.
