We saw hippos, crocs, elephants, water buffalo. The wetlands are very pretty. We saw some amazing birds. Take your long lens to get the best shots. This was one of our favorite runs! The guide was very knowledgeable, and the boat was comfy.

There were some amazing sightings here, lions, elephants, leopards etc, but be warned the driver can't follow the animals off road, so you won't always get close to them. Its definitely a game reserve to take your zoom lens to.
