  • Despite it feeling like I was in a big zoo, this watering hole was the coolest thing about our stay. It was the only thing that kept me from packing up and leaving after day 1.  more »
  • You could stay for hours here, it’s a continuous coming and going of animals to get there daily water. Perfect spot for nice pictures  more »
