Stunning walkways and great place to see hippos up close. Lots of other wildlife like bushbuck and of course vervets. We camped at Futululu caravan park where we constantly had bushbabies and red duiker in the camp. The camp is quite isolated and offers easy hikes.

Took a boat trip...it was amazing, saw plenty hippos, crocs. Saw a few buck and a lone buffalo. The bird life was absolutely fantastic. Our guide was very informative and knowledgeable. Would love to do that again.

The birdlife is fabulous and it's exciting to see crocodiles and hippos close up from the boat. The children and adults alike loved it.

A wonderful, relaxing way to end the day. Great hippo and croc sightings. Also fantastic bird spotting opportunities. Even though the Boat is covered, it gets very warm so pack sunscreen.

I went on the boat trip, but probably I chose bad timing, all hippos were sleepy in the water... I recommend going in the afternoon
