The park contributes to the conservation of the endangered black rhino with over 48 of these animals occurring here.
The over 400 Cape buffalo are now being seen more often during the day due to the influence of lion reintroduction. This is one of the largest disease-free herds in South Africa.
Lions were introduced into the park in late 2003 and have adapted well to their new environment growing to three wonderful prides. Lions are most often seen in the early morning or on sunset and night drives.
