Crowded by lack of access into a larger body of water - too many tour boats all trying to get up close and photo perfect for hippos!

The wetlands themselves are pristine and beautiful to spend time traveling through. Woe betide the weary traveler who might need to relieve themselves as some of the ablution facilities especially the Cape Vidal ones are terribly maintained and are very dirty.

After 10 days in magnificent Kruger and Hluhluwe, we found this park quite boring and devoid of wild life. It also seems like the wetlands are fast becoming dry land and the sand dunes are moving in. Maybe a few wet seasons might reverse things...More
