Enjoyed this great woodland so close to the city. Watched different species of birds. Saw herds of Zebra giraffes and deer. Later on saw the crocodiles. Everywhere looked so green & vibrant as it was the rainy season.

We took a wonderful foot safari with Daniel as guide. He's been there 22 years and knows the place like the back of his hand. Please visit as they need your support.
