Hello Graham!Please tell me?How about wild beast in these places?Is it dangerous there?Roma.

Graham Hobbs on November 18, 2009

Hi Roma - this is in a National Park, but it has been give national park status for its scenery, not it's wildlife - there might be the odd leopard around in the hills, but there's nothing too dangerous that you're likely to meet (except maybe snakes) - not like the game parks like the Kruger, where there are plenty of lions as well as rhinos and elephants and many more snakes etc - you can only leave your car in designated places there ... #0
