Good place to relax and interact with nature. Free roaming impalas and giraffes. Cage lions, leopards and other animals. Quiet a number of picnic sites. There is an impressive nature trail. Impressed by the railway section, lots of history of the Kenya- Uganda Railway.

Highlight was being able to go into the cheetah enclosure and pat her. Fantastic experience with 2 young nephews.
