Drives are for families who are travelling with very little ones that cannot walk yet. For this activity, visitors usually rent a jeep that will be able to go on safari. A guide usually goes along with you to explain the different animals that you will be seeing as you drive around in the park, and to answer any questions that your children may have. You will get to have a close look at the wild animals that roam around. You can either pick whether you want to go on a morning drive, a sunset drive or an evening drive. For the morning drive, you will get to watch the sun rise, for the sunset drive, you will get to see the beauty of the wilderness as day turns into night. For the evening drive, you will get to witness the nocturnal animals living in the park and what their activities are when it gets dark.
Bird watching is an activity where you can spend quality time with your children. There are about 500 species of birds found inside the National Park such as vultures, bee-eaters, hornbills, etc. Each part of the park will have different species of birds living in them. You can record and take pictures of the birds that you have seen and observe them to see what they eat and how they live.
