Teaming with bird life, crocodiles and wetland vegetation with a very informative local tour guide. Make sure you have plenty of film and binoculars. Insect repellent is a must as the mozzies are very friendly.

Sunset cruise with Reuben. Never short of a yarn or great information about any of the multitude of wildlife, vegetation or local customs and heritage. Great value all round.

Hi Deb G, It is definitely recommended to booked in advance for the sunrise cruise, particularly if travelling during the dry season. It is recommended to book about a week in advance.
