The boat trip was very good, we saw the crocodiles and hippopotamuses which was good, two hours was enough, the tour guide explained a lot but all drinks and snacks u had to pay extra and there was a lot of people on the boat.

What a fantastic tour! The guide was knowledgeable, funny and engaging. As the boat was limited to 15 passengers it was a comfortable space and everyone was able to get a good view of the surroundings. Extremely happy with our experience. Thank you Shoreline!
