Did the elephant back ride through the bush. They have other interesting activities, also. Very informative, interesting, and interactive with the animals and guides. Only reason not a 5 is I had hoped ride potion was longer. Loved it though.

Went there with our bunch and was a great experience, we were all taken in by the thrill of the big 5. Unfortunately we didnt book the elephant ride and we found they were out. $70 per adult ride.
