Considering the beauty of the reserve, it has amazing spots. The river coast and #camping worth it. About the game-drive it was very poor regarding #wildlife. If you’re looking for calm and peace, it worth it. If your motivation is wild life beside birds, you should pass it. Using guide service is mandatory to visit the park and Ibrahim was great and very kind to us. The gate/reception guards were totally arrogant and lazy. Actually they were the worst part of this park
Really worth a visit, the animals are back at the Park
