The landscape is mainly flat, covered with vegetation mostly composed of small clusters of shrubs, palms and marshy areas covered with papyrus plants. This type of habitat facilitates the sighting of the animals that live in the Park.
Among the main specimens that you will be able to spot there are the famous "Big five": lions, leopards, buffaloes, elephants and rhinos; these are just some of the magnificent animals that you will be able to admire. The most daring and patient will be able to take post and Birdwatching to contemplate the various species of birds.
