Took the boat ride around the Wetland Park. There were lots of hippos here of course, but they stay mostly submerged. Fun to see them yawn and listen to them grunt. Sounds like a bunch of old men laughing.
Its great to see how this area has recovered from the forestry industry of the last century. We saw a magnitude of animals birds and fish. The differing biomes within the park are also amazing to experience. Staff were friendly and professional, roads great and...More

If you have your own vehicle (no 4WD needed) it is very easy. Generally the roads are reasonable (some tarred and others dirt - but not too bad). You can get a map at the park entrance and signage is good so you won't get lost! If you have no vehicle of your own there are plenty of tour operators in the area (e.g. from St Lucia). However, they can be quite expensive and if you are happy to do so (no big risks just a degree of self-confidence and care required) you can drive yourself either with your own vehicle or a hire-car (St Lucia has an agency). Take your own food and drinks if on your own as nothing can be relied upon as being available at Mpila camp! A great day out - and only 45 mins. from St Lucia on a tarred road (R618)
