The crater is beautiful landscape and the variety of animals are unbelievable. I had a great time of approximately 4h in there, which is enough in my opinion. Great start or ending of the Safari trip more »
This place is bursting with wildlife. You can't spend enough time here. We absolutely loved it. Would definitely recommend.
