On a previous trip to St Lucia I had been on a boat cruise so I had decided not to do one on this trip. However my mind was changed when another traveler told me about the Shakabarker boat cruise. The primary reason I changed my mind was being told how knowledgeable the guides were and how interesting it had been. I would strongly advise taking the last trip of the day as it includes a sunset which was stunning the evening we went.

Night drive....what a great experience, our very knowledgeable guide, Kian that made the drive so interesting sharing knowledge on both the animals, nature & the area, excellent viewings of bushbaby’s, hippo, frogs, chameleons, kudu, bushbuck, waterbuck, rhino, buffalo & spending time among the herd of elephant grazing. It was the best night drive we’ve ever done & ending it off with hot chocolate under a sky of bright stars. Thank you so much, we’ll be back.

Excellent experience with JABULANI. -Goes into intricate details about everything he sees, -Open to questions about anything, -Great spotting skills (spotted a Cameleon amongst leaves while he drove and operated the spotlight), -Great people skills and really interactive with his guests, -Really knows how to ease a crowd (there was a situation where a guest suspected that a snake had slithered around him. Jabulani was quick to explain what snake it likely was, and assess if he had potentially been bitten; he had not been.) I would highly recommend booking with this tour operator. I am certainly going to in future.

JABULANI WAS AMAZING! If ever I go back to St Lucia I’m definitely booking a night ride with Jabulani!
