Fantastic Night Safari!
Mihail_G, Jan 2023
That was the most awesome night safari I‘ve ever done! We saw really amazing animals; the guide was super good and friendly - he took photos for us and told us a lot about the animals! I loved it!

It was nice seeing the nocturnal life but it was pouring rain so there wasn’t much to see and after an hour, it was uncomfortable though we had dressed for the weather with ponchos and waterproof shoes. Maybe some tours shouldn’t go forward in the rain?

4 is only due to the mixup and the issue with the company getting there. They have departure at 6pm, and the departure was actually at 5:40, so we missed it, and they were able after some haggling to agree to take us the next day, but for an extra fee. The tour itself was fantastic. On a beautiful paved path. We took our time and really discovered tons of animals and plenty of insects. I'd definitely recommend the tour, just be ready at 5:30pm for hotel pickup otherwise you might end up in the same situation as us. Our guide spoke great English and was fantastic!
