We went as a family on this estuary cruise. Young and old were fascinated. Our guide Heynie was humorous and very knowledgeable about the area and animals. He made sure we got the best sightings. The boat was extremely comfortable. The hippos all delivered a spectacular show, saw amazing birds and the massive crocodile at the end of the trip was the cherry on top. Highly recommend this unique tour 10/10

We have been traveling in SA for our honeymoon. We arrived in St Lucia after several safari days in Kruger and around. When we booked the Hippo tour, we wondered if this would be a different experience: it was and was totally worth it. Our captain and guide (Heine) was passionate and happy to share his knowledge with humour, which we highly appreciated. We went literally next to the hippos, we never had been so close to them ! This was amazing. We also so a croc and many birds from very close. Moreober, we appreciated to be on a boat on a lake and to see different landscapes than Kruger. Definitely recommanded!

Shoreline's booking team is super-efficient and friendly, and the Hippo Tour was amazing. A very competent and knowledgeable skipper took us on a wonderful journey to view the hippos and learn more about them. Thanks for an unforgettable experience.
