An abundance of bird and animal life makes for exciting game viewing whilst enjoying the peace and tranquility of the Mokolo River. Enjoy an interactive boat trip where guests can view crocs lazing, hear fish eagles calling, see the elephant cooling off and spot the occasional hippo yawning. On the comfortable and secure 10-seater vessel, you'll hear from knowledgeable field guides who can answer your questions, point out unusual sights as you sail through the water, and provide fascinating information on both the estuarine system and its inhabitants.

 

From the boat deck you will also see various species of antelope and other wildlife that come down to the shores to graze and drink water. Photographic opportunities abound for both birds and game. This is the ideal opportunity for taking in the spectacular sunset views as the birds wing their way home and the bushveld slowly turns to dusk.

  • African Finfoot
