Wildlife & Birding
Sometimes you don't need the Big 5 to achieve a great nature experience. Combine this with the options to do game drives, bush walks and stalk out the different antelope species that hide in the bush. Of course, the tropical climate is very attractive to rare and indigenous bird species and I think any twitcher will be more then satisfied to spend some time exploring the bush and the surrounds.
