There are all kinds of wildlife in the park.

It has what most tourists are keen to see, the 'Big Five' (leopard, lion, white and black rhino, elephant and buffalo), plus much more in the shape and form of smaller animals, like the hyaena, the springbok, giraffe, zebra, cheetah, sable, crocodiles and hippos being some of them.

Tons of little insects too.. sadly overlooked often by visitors.

We brought our sister-in-law to the park, and she had NEVER seen an elephant beofre (or any of the other animals!), outside of books and postcards. Not even a zoo.

It was delightful watching her face as we came across yet another animal. We were fortunate and saw the entire 'big five' that day.
