The park is particularly known for the abundance of Ancient Baobab trees (the largest tree on the continent ) which fill the landscape and dwarf the animal next to them. The river of the park is full of wildlife ranging from a large variety of birds to lions, leopards, zebras, giraffes, buffaloes, antelopes and, of course, elephants. In fact, the park has the largest concentration of elephants in the whole country and provides unique chances to observe the interaction between elephant families. The lunch area is fascinating, boasting an observatory with amazing views of the river and wildlife (with good chances of seeing a hunt while having your picnic) In the afternoon we will still do a game drive before continuing to your accommodation.
