Leave the island by boat and head to the mainland and the reserve where you are sure to encounter large herds of elephant as well as buffalo, lion, hyena, giraffe and numerous antelope species. The typical drive lasts around four hours, a trip that includes a break or two for refreshments. The park is beautiful, the guides knowledgeable and the overall experience incredible. Wandering in the wild and communing with nature is truly invigorating.
