hardly any game except baboons and some birds. Did not see a single tree lion for which the park is famous for. Very disappointed.

Limited wildlife viewing. If you are only in Tanzania one day, this might be ok for a day trip, but as far as a safari destination, I’d go for the bigger parks.

I don’t think March was the right time to go. We didn’t see many animals or flamingo but it was a beautiful place.

It's a special NP with a thick forest, which makes game viewing very hard, especially big cats. It would be nice to come closer to the lake itself.

Is animals density combined with the high general cost of doing safari in Tanzania makes this park a bad idea - I would rather spend more time in Tarangire or Serengeti than visiting this park again.

The lake level is continually being depleted for agricultural interests and as such the ability to see hippo, flamingos and other water reliant species are being diminished. This park can be bypassed if on a tight schedule and/or budget. I rate this park Fair for wildlife photography.
