Our guide was very knowledgeable and spent an appropriate amount of time educating us on the many unique aspects of the park. Go in the AM when its less crowded!

Excellent bridge walking experience with great views. Not as much wildlife as you might expect but did see the backside of the national bird. Zip wire experience and butterfly and reptile houses to see. Nice inexpensive restaurant.
