It's not just about the Hippos, during your St Lucia Boat Tour you may encounter various wildlife on the banks of the estuary, some species that frequent the area include Leopard, Elephants, Water Buck and many more.

Our Happy Clients

We had an amazing ride with Dennis my son thoroughly enjoyed it, was wonderful to see the crocs so close and the hippos absolutely enjoyed



This was our first stop on a two-week ZA trip and it did not disappoint! The guide was extremely knowledgeable and open for questions. He went into great detail about these animals and shared some very interesting facts. There was plenty of time to ask questions and take pictures. Our boat was fairly small compared to the other companies we saw, which was certainly an advantage - a more personal experience.
