Great day. The guide Jenny was awesome and very organised. Good was decent too. A lot to fit in but were aware of this prior. Good to see wild crocs on the river. Would highly recommend if you can’t self drive and spend a few days touring the area

We really enjoyed this experience. Daniel was very knowledgeable and made the experience so much more enjoyable. He was very friendly and made sure everyone was enjoying themselves. He had us all laughing throughout the whole day.

Our guide was Jenny. She was organized, knowledgeable, punctual, highly competent, and communicative. She was excellent and made the trip perfect.

Educational and relevant. Lunch needs improving but the setting lovely. Jenny our driver guide was great. It was a long day with beauty abounding.

It was a fantastic experience but the driver cum guide was rushing a bit too much. Overall experience was good.
