Doesn t worth the high price. When finally its possible to see the cricodiles and hippos, they move on and come back. They dont let you enjoy. They just want to go back. Poor service, even when asked to stop. Not recommanded at all!!!!!

All you will get is crocs, zebras, some gazelle, and maybe a nile monitor or a snake. If you are looking for a real safari go to Kenya. This is a cool experience but very lacking in wildlife variety.

This was an amazing experience, we drove straight to the lake from the airport, to have a glimpse of the massive reptiles, we where not dissapointed, after a boat ride lasting close to 30 minutes we spotted the massive beasts..
