“A must do”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2012

A great place to spend some time with many activities you can take part in from boat trips to hikes. Guaranteed to see some wildlife although don't hold your breath for a tiger!
Plan your activities in advance and make sure you know how to get the tickets in the mornings!

“Saw a wild elephant! Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012

Beautiful place and bonus of seeing a wild elephant who came to check us out (from a respectful distance of course)

Local monkeys are also very entertaining...Had to throw myself to the ground as one jumped for a tourist's snack who happened to be standing right next to me

“No animals really to see”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2012

Its a quiet nice boat ride and if that is all your expecting, then your fine but factor in a busy boat and not much wildlife and you'll not be let down in your expectations.
