Highly recommended. We were a group of six people who enjoy holidaying in SA together. The river trip was along some beautiful scenery with a short stop at a nature reserve. The commentary was very informative and professional. This was one of the highlights of our group's holiday.

We have just spent a wonderful morning on the Keurbooms River on the ferry. The skipper, Russell, is very knowledgeable with regards to the forna and flora, history and rock formations of the area. He engages with the whole group making it a very special trip for all. The facinating jelly fish were a surprise for all. We were also interested to see a seal up the river.
The time spent at Whisky Creek island was a pleasant experience with beautiful water to swim in.
The trip is well worth the time and money.
