  • We saw a lot of animals and birds very close by and the boat ride is in a beautiful river with lovely views. It was hot when we set off but well worthwhile.  more »
  • Amazing wildlife viewing on this short but sweet trip around the channel. We saw elephants and hippos in their natural environment. Very enjoyable!  more »
