“saw pods of hippos”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

I had a boat tour of the St. Lucia Estuary. This tidal estuary is home to Nile crocodiles, hippos, sea turtles and even sharks. Unfortunately it was raining day, I only saw pods of hippos and some birds. The tour was about 2 hours long and the guide was knowledgeable about this area. There was bar services and toilet facility on boat.

“Nice boat cruise”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

We did a 2 hour boat cruise. It was nice, but a bit boring close to the end. We did see plenty of hippos and a few crocodiles, but not much else. There was also plenty of birds to see if you are into that. For us the cruise was a bit too long and a little boring.

“Hello Hippos!”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

In September my group traveling to Zululand to visit our partner hospice, Zululand Hospice, enjoyed the two hour boat ride to see hippos, crocs, birds...and a lovely day for a river ride! We have never been disappointed; there are always pods of hippos and usually a crocodile sunning on a bank. We especially enjoy seeing the baby hippos staying close to their mothers. The guide was very knowledgeable, identifying birds and other animal life we happened to come upon. A very interesting and enjoyable two hours.

“Nice boat trip”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

It was an interesting trip and we could see a lot of hippos from our boat. If you are in this zone, in my opinion the boat trip is the best sightseeing option.
