And for general tour- 2 nights 3 days is must and for specific interest such as birdwatching you need 3-4 days, atleast to maximise the record. At the same time experience wildlife resorts located near the park would be the best, who are experienced in wildlife safari service with experienced and educated nature guides and experts. We book and recommend mainly of this category, even though that costs more than just city type lodges. This guarantee the real wildlife experience!
