In addition to lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffalo, there are over 140 mammal species here as well as over 500 bird species. There are also a large number of reptiles, amphibians and fish in the park – which includes more than 330 different species.
The park also contains a number of archaeological goodies – such as cave paintings and other traces of early human activity.
