This is one giant swamp! Best is you visit in the morning to take a sightseeing boat to see water lilies and birds. It’s quite cool in morning ( February).

Birds, birds, birds... A lot of them. It is impressing, but when no-one can tell you about them, and the driver just - eh, drive - it is probably not very much you can got out of it. But a lot of birds, yes.
