The abundance of the wildlife and remote valleys are the great attractions for a true bush lover. It is a unique ecosystem, where people and nature get along with each other and where the sustainable management of the park takes place.
It wasn't always like that. Due to poaching, the population of animals were decreasing, but the most outrageous case was the extermination of the lion population - except the only one lioness Lady Liuwa. Nonetheless in virtue of past few years conservation efforts, lions were reintroduced to the park as well as the wildebeest migration became one of the largest in Africa.
