The trail was incredible. the guides were very informative and the route itself had great sitings and was very pleasant. You don't need to be fit, its a very easy walk.

It was a really good trip where our guide told and sowed us a lot about the different animals in the park. We where also really close to many of the animals we saw.

I've done this trail twice and each time expectations more than met. Rangers made the experience exceptional with attention to detail in explaining what was happening. Meals were beyond expectations given the location and distance from main camps.
