This park is well organised and as you enter you are allocated a guide if you have pre-booked through an agent. Otherwise you can simply arrive at reception by taxi/car/bus and spend the day at your own leisure without guide. To be quite honest, without...More

If you are afraid of heights, beware! There is supposed to be 16 hanging bridges, but some are not ‘hanging’....Nevertheless, it is amazing. Lots of interesting creatures, and flora to be seen,,,if you want to go with a guide, you will learn a lot more....More
