This tour is amazing- we saw the pink flamingos, crocodiles, many different types of birds and the pink salt lake. It was just so interesting to see such different things and our tour guide was very knowledgable and really enjoyed what he did.

Diego jumped to the rescue when another guide in town let us down. Some fine birding, which William continued in excellent fashion out in the mangroves by boat and then even early Christmas day by car. Professional, expert and caring.
