    The whole experience exceeded our expectations, so many highlights and special moments. We saw four of the big five, only the leopard hid from us. We managed to get up close and personal with some beautiful animals.

    I found March to be good as the weather was not too hot and we saw a lot of animals. September is about the same I have been told.
