“Excellent Hippo boat tour”

Reviewed 7 March 2016

We took the Heritage Tours boat and our guide was simply awesome. She didn't tire out from my kids's incessant questioning. We got really close to the animals and it was obvious that she was in control of her boat and the animals' welfare was her priority , not just your typical tourist pleaser. in terms of entertainment, education and simply a great time on the estuary, it was a perfect two hour tour.

Home of the Zulu’s, Shakaland and the Wetlands.
We visited the St. Lucia Wetlands to see their population of around 900 Hippo’s and 1,600 Crocodiles. One Hippo tooth can weigh up to 5kg and their jaws can crush a human like a little tin can. Yet these huge monsters of the river (and a relative of the whale) will not harm the small critters they live with.
Lots of birdlife as well. Worth the trip

We visited the Wetlands in januari during our stay in St Lucia.
Impressive national park with a nice trip to Cape Vidal. The iew at the beach was magnificent.

Perfect way to see the incredible wildlife that makes a home in the estuary. The tour boat guide/captain was very entertaining and informative, ensuring we had the best view of the birds, hippos, and crocodiles. You will never be closer to large hippo groups than this !

Very interesting boat trip with lots of wildlife sightings. Knowledgeable captain. And at the parking lot a man selling great little carvings that hold tea lights. Be sure to get at least one.
