I would recommend visiting here it is a must I would also suggest having your own vehicle as you can do everything at your own pace just follow the tour guides or look for parked cars you will find animals there

The game drive was booked with Sanparks, honestly I preferred the self drives during the day. The driver drove to fast to even spot anything. We did see a few elephants, giraffes and hippo's. Won't do a night drive again.
