It's a tiny park but the zebras definitely make it work a stop over. We really enjoyed our time there and the views of the lake were amazing. We even were able to see a few giraffes!

We saw hundreds of baboons, impalas, zebras, monkeys, Akole cows, goats, sheep, and friendly villagers. This place is gorgeous and serene. We stayed in a lodge outside the park and we did not have to pay the park fee unless you entered the exact park....More

We were very lucky here & saw lots on an evening drive: giraffe courtship/fighting, a leopard, bush-babies plus standard zebra/baboob/wart-hog etc. Very good morning walk too & lots of photogenic locations (watering holes). Different & nice

Hello! Crazy question - My fiance and I are interested in taking our engagement photos at this park with a local photographer. For the walking safaris, how close do people generally get to the animals (like zebras, giraffes)? Is there some type of limit to the distance? Thank you!
