After dark it is not safe to wander around the park, we highly recommend that you get an escort with the light to go back to your room after dinner. This is extremely critical because the camps and the lodges are not fenced.
You’re not allowed to feed the animals, neither birds.
The fine is $100 on the spot.
Calmness and quiet is highly recommended during game drive to maintain peace and tranquility of the animals.
