Wildlife at the Park
Inside the park itself there is a main camp, which features a stunning restaurant, a swimming pool & various accommodation options. There are also 4 other camps that are run by concessionaires, that feature various types of accommodation that should suit all tastes & budgets.
Right outside the park itself, there are quite a few accommodation options as well. Whether you are looking for 5-star luxury accommodation, or simply a budget place to lay her head after a great day spent in the park, you will find these options in the area bordering the park.
We recommend you check out the following camps:
