Smaal, but great National Park. Perfect service and easy to get a guide to a good price. We stayed just outside the park and it was an easy drive to get into the park. A lot of animals and birds.

We were on a self-drive safari. Fees payable at the gate for two adults and car, for were 321,000 Ugandan shillings. This was for a 24 hours pass to enter/exit the park as often as you wished in this period.
