You only swim in the area near the boat and the crew are there to keep an eye on you and they wouldn't allow you in the water if it was too rough. The sea always looks worse on the shore as those breakers can be very... More
You only swim in the area near the boat and the crew are there to keep an eye on you and they wouldn't allow you in the water if it was too rough. The sea always looks worse on the shore as those breakers can be very dangerous and drag you out to sea.

Yes we did it. Can’t quite remember the price(sorry).I seem to think it was a little pricey but worth it. Take a jumper for on the night as it got a little chilly.After the elephant wash we hardly had chance to get dried before onto the next item in the agenda. (They do come around with hot water for you to shower with) When eating our evening meal it was rather nippy under the fans.The beds were so comfy for me - I’d not slept in 3 nights and it was the best nights sleep i’d had, the rooms are basic but you’re in the jungle!.No shampoos and soaps or towels-so don’t forget those. You can buy toiletries from a stall near the bar area.And take a change of clothes ‘cos if you wanna wash the elephants you’ll get squirted👍🏼.Sorry to say this and I’m not being nasty- all the people we were with felt the same about this- the Russians were treated so differently to the rest. The staff were lovely with us-but just felt that they were going the extra mile for the Russians! You’ll enjoy it though 😊.Are you doing the Waterfalls too? If so go in trainers or take some to change into. It’s rather a rocky route. Saw a lady slip as she was wearing flip flops. It’s very busy at the Waterfalls but stunning. If you’re lucky you might get to see a train go over the Waterfalls. You’ll enjoy it whatever you decide to do-we did.
