Nice park, but it's best go either in the morning 6 am or late evening to see the entire animals. While at the park, you basically drive along looking for the animals

We had a terrible guide---Stanley from Wilderness Zones Safaris. Wilderness Zones Safaris (WZS) is a FANTASTIC company, but this was one bad egg. He tried to bilk us out of $45 to dance with the Masai in the parking lot at the Park. Price went...More

Visited this park again on July 14th, 2018. Were able to spot a pride of 17 lions!! Also saw a Lion with a kill. Lucky enough to spot two white Rhinos at this park along with other regular animals.

This is by far a great experience for anyone who can spare up to 3-4 hours either starting from 6:30am or starting 15:30-16:00. In between, animals sleep so you would likely dont see them - dont agree on any tours that would like to take...More

Despite the encroachment of housing and other buildings, this is still a nice park with animals to see. The Chinese road construction through the park is hideous and unfortunate, or one could say based judgement. Best to go early on the am before the crowds...More

per person is usd 43 and for a 8 seater tour van is 15 usd inclusive of driver.Tour van is recommended due to nature of roads and better positions to view the animals coz of the pop up roof.
