Protected as a biosphere reserve of international importance, the park encompasses over 10,000 hectares (25,000 acres) with vast sections available for hiking, cycling, boating, and fishing.

Great place, we came unprepared and didn't know there was so much to see. Will definitely go back very soon and take 2 days to look around, maybe rent a bike.
All I can say is Wow. Fabulous. Beautiful. So much to see. Camera place for sure. Jaunting cars for hire cycling hires. Or just lovely place to go for an evening walk.
