The only bad thing this cruise has is if you can not do the sunrise and sunset, you are going to miss out. If I was made to pick I’d do the morning, just because of the beautiful breakfast you get. The guides are awesome...More

We done both the late afternoon and morning cruise. Best time of year, mid November, been enough rain to bring out the wildlife but not too much rain that you can't find any! Highly recommend the cruise

We found the wildlife viewing from the boat on the Yellow Water to be superb. Many times, we were able to get exceptional views at close range as the boat drifted silently toward the shore. Highlights included several crocodiles, wild buffalo, horse and cattle, several...More

Yes, easy. The cruise is just down the road from the hotel. A mini bus picks you up at a designated time. You do the cruise then come back to the hotel for breakfast. A great way to do the cruise. Hope this helps, the... More
