I have taken the self drive thrice. I have been lucky once to see a rhino and hippo. However that makes it fun unlike it being predictable as if its a zoo.

I had the opportunity to visit Mpongo Park for a daily excursion and was pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the park. Rivers flowing through with lots of game to view on the drive. If you love nature you will certainly enjoy Mpongo Park.
