We loved the scenery and all the wildlife we witnessed on our tour. We saw crocodiles, hippos, warthogs, water buffaloes and many bird species like the African fish eagle. We enjoyed seeing the fishing village near the mouth of Lake George. Highly recommend!

We went out on a boat safari in the afternoon for a couple of hours. Alot of birdlife , hippos, crocdiles, buffalo, elephants along the channel. Being in a boat you can get surprisingly close, allows for good phots.
