This was not during the migration. There were not huge herds of wildebeast and zebra--just a few that do not migrate. We saw leopards, giraffes, elephants, cheetahs, lions, hippos, hyenas, zebras, and buffaloes, to name a few. (That is four of the big five, if you are counting).
In Namibia, we had to stay on the roads and we drove ourselves around the park. It was a great experience. Here, we rode with a guide who had a radio and talked with other guides about where the animals were. Also, we were able to drive all around the plain. It was a different experience. I can't choose which one was better.
