For those complaining about not being able to swim, that is up to the park management and crocodiles (which do unfortunately make their way inland, causing them to occasionally close swimming sites); the tour guides/companies have no control over the government or nature (; If you can secure Cam as your guide, this may be one of your best park tours."..."
