Not sure why but we could not see much. Also we did not have a map and they did not have maps available at the entrance. One thing we recommend for sure is to do Gorge hiking. That was really awesome

Good park, lots of herbivores & warthogs. But main attraction is Devil's Bedroom. Beautiful gorge. Try to go down with a guide and walk in both directions. Beware of flash floods. Check with guide and make sure it didn't rain profusely in the past days...More

You have to be reasonably fit. The guides will assist those less athletic. The thermal pools are not that exciting, but the gorge walk is well worth it.
