Honestly, it was pretty disappointing. Even though we were picked up somewhere, we rushed through the park for 3h. Our driver couldn’t speak English, therefore he couldn’t explain ANYTHING. It was so fast, we nearly ran over some animals. (It was really really close sometimes because it was so fast and I think he just wanted to finish his job.) nevertheless we saw a bear and some deers, but only because there were already a lot of jeeps there. We took this safari because compared to others it seemed extremely cheap and we booked it only one day in advance, so it was the only one available - but I would rather not doing an safari than doing this one again. Just watch which company you are booking, and maybe you can ask some locals if they have good recommendations.
