Customer Reviews

Everything was perfect including our friendly guide or ship driver #Skeeper I will visit again soon with my team/crew - Juckey Sekgweleo

Best experience ever. The service was excellent, the staff is very friendy. Will do it all over again. - Fanelwa

I would highly recommend this trip along the river bay. A great place to stop on way back to PE from Addo. Try out the dune sledding for some added fun. - Alastair Reynolds

A lovely experience with spectacular views and birdlife sightings. Thanks a stack! - Ingrid Conradie

We received a very personal service as we were the only two people on that river cruise. We went up river first under the new and old road bridges to see the bird life. Then down river to land and take a short walk on the dunes. All a very enjoyable experience. - Martyn Langford
