Customer Reviews

excellent cruise - Andrew Brown

Great experience in a beautiful setting. Saw elephants, hippos, crocodiles and lots of birds. The guys on the boat were excellent and the refreshments were lovely too. - Steven Ware

Excellent! Saw numerous animals and birds. The crew had great eyes for finding the most hidden animals and we were never rushed when trying to get a photo. The river tour itself was very enjoyable and the breakfast on the island was so much more than we expected. Would highly recommend this tour to all who are visiting the area. - Lynda Purdy

I loved the river boat safari. The boat is small enough to get very close to the banks and we were lucky enough to see a crocodile and dozens of hippos, a lot of bird life, too. The breakfast is very much welcome at the end of the trip. - Floriane
