Customer Reviews

It was my second time and my husbands first time, we really enjoyed it! We saw amazing scenes. Would do it again! - Joelene Swift


The cruise was well worth the money and the effort and the skipper Natasha I think was brilliant. Kept all well informed and made a very decent effort in showing us the hippos, crocs and more. It was the enthusiasm she was doing it with that rubbed off on all of us and that made the trip worth it, not just another old boring day taking tourists up and down the river, she really spiced it up!! Well done Natasha!!! - Lionel Higgo


Pleasant 2hr boat cruise. It was on time as advertised. Captain's running commentary was very enjoyable - but there were parts of the boat where there were no speakers - so it was difficult to hear the commentary clearly. Saw quite a number of hippos - but did not see any crocs at all. Overall - a very pleasant leisurely trip. - Roy Srini


The experience was interesting and enjoyable, thanks to the experienced skipper and his knowledge of the Lake. Unfortunately, we didn't see any crocs! And we loved the photos! Many thanks. - Rick Andries
