Great park to get away from crowds and the roads are a dream after the west side of the island. For the first couple of hours we saw deer, buffalo, monitor lizard and great birds. It was a beautiful drive. When we saw the elephants it made it super special. The first two were at a distance , the next two right up close - really close! Then we came across a herd of mothers and babies feeding. It was magical. Very uncommercial if that’s a word. Guides are very keen to please but have limited English . A great trip
