Very Knowledgeable

So glad we ended up getting a guide. We saw so many things that we would of missed otherwise. And we learned a lot about the history of the park and the wildlife that lives there.

Had a fabulous time. Our guide was super knowledgeable and we saw lots of animals even though it ended up pouring rain on us. We still had a great time.
