    Fantastic host, who was extremely knowledgeable about the surroundings, history of the indigenous people and the crocodiles. Unfortunately due to high tides and an increase in temperature we only managed to see two juvenile crocodiles. Although the host went out I’d his way to try to ensure we managed to see something. He kept us out longer and took us further up the mouth of the river than usual. He also got up close to a females nest to try to capture the massive female and her best on camera for us all to see. Highly recommend!

    A truly memorable day. Well organised, interesting, very informative and fun. Saw many crocodiles, both small and large. Fab BBQ lunch and damper tea in the afternoon. Afternoon wetlands tour was so interesting. A 'must do'. You wont regret it.

    A very well organised safari with many crocs to be seen. Our tour guide Mark and his assistant Ian were excellent with everything. The bus pick-up and drop-off was spot on and very efficient. An excellent and a very enjoyable day indeed and worth every cent. Highly recommended.

    We had such a great day on the safari, we seen plenty of crocodiles so close and personal and in their natural habitat. The staff were very informative and had great knowledge of everything. The food was good and pick up and drop off was very convenient right at your hotel doors. Highly recommended.
