Ernest our guide for the morning was very knowledgeable. It was worth it just to see the rhino which we saw 5 all the other animals were shy that morning . Ernest made an otherwise uneventful trip a good one with all his knowledge on the animals in the park as well as the park itself

Make sure you collect your receipt from the 'Welcome Centre' in Sun Central before the trip. The walk up to bus stop 7 for pick up is 30 seconds. Don't rush to get on... we waited for a fresh bus and took the back row seats. We had room for our bags and coats as well as ourselves... Its a 5 minute ride and you're in the park. The drivers speak to each other so you all have a great opportunity of seeing the majority of animals. You get a 'pit stop' halfway through for a snack and the toilet. Definitely take your coats, we were glad of ours.. Got to see, Giraffe, baboons, Hyenas, White Rhino, a bull Elephant and Lions hunting Wildebeest and Zebras... Also saw a group of lionesses devouring a Wildebeest right at the side of the road... The driver was friendly and informative. He answered all our questions.... A great way to spend half a day and worth the money..

The guide is very knowledgeable, good with people and outstanding overall. But, we forgot about jackets that morning, not used to the extremely cold in the early mor ing. It almost put a demper on the moment of being there. I am suggesting that, although there was a request to bring with warm items, yes, it is also a good idea to have items like extra blankets on the shuttle bus/transporting vehicle for those people who didn't dress warm enough. Please consider this as an extra mile you can give your clients. You will have us and our friends back :)
