Went on the boat to see falls. Its a great experience. There is a guide and you can buy few cold drinks if needed. The boat does not come very close to the falls.

yeah this park,first of all its not on high way though the road that pass through can accommodate all sort of vehicles back to the question yes while in the park not on highway as it said you can
Hi, we're planning on visiting in September as budget travellers with our own vehicle.
