The price of admission for this National Park is well worth it. At one point, we saw a herd of nearly 20 elephants playing in the water. We saw a variety of other animals. The only thing we were not able to find were lions. I would love to have had more time to search for them.

It is always a challenge finding game on a self drive excursion. We entered the park at the Heritage gate and were soon rewarded by spotting a large Buffalo. Off one of the side roads we came across a couple of bulls grazing. Not much to be seen on our way to Hilltop but got the opportunity to chat with a ranger who gave us some tips. We then got to see a big herd of Elephants close to the road with their young. Time was pushing on so we took a route back to be out by 6 pm and on our way came across a Tower of Giraffes a very angry Elephant bull who was wrecking the bush and drove away very fast, saw a wild dog on the road side and then the highlight of the day was a young bull coming down the road from Hilltop camp. Quite a daunting sight. Needless to say we were late in leaving the park and had a lot of explaining to do. Nevertheless this was by far the most exciting self drive game viewing experience ever!

Scenery is great, but without a 4x4 you can only drive on the one tar road running through the park. The worst sand/gravel roads I've seen. I would have expected the office or gate to inform visitors of the dangerous sand roads which are an obstacle course not to be traversed by a sedan motor vehicle.

Not the parks fault, but this time of the year the bush is very, very thick so unless an animal is on the road you will struggle to see any animals. I recommend a stay of 2 nights and one day. That's more than enough time to see the entire park.

Visited this game park on an overcast, at limes misty day, which resulted in us only seeing a few animals. This included a large male elephant, a rhino with a baby several types of buck, and a few zebra. Stopped at Hilltop for a morning cappuccino, which was not that great. The park was very quiet after only being recently been opened since lockdown. Despite the weather, we enjoyed this experience.
