We got on the boat with our guide (Duncan) and he said "what would you like to see this afternoon?" I thought for a minute and said "Kingfishers" so he found us five different species inside an hour. Lots of hippos and crocks too. After a while we had a drink and watched the sun go down and then chugged home to change for dinner. That was our first afternoon and we spent the rest of our stay alternating between walking tours, jeep rides and another trip out on the river. The rooms were very good, the food not bad and the staff were all friendly and on the ball.
