Kayak To An Exclusive Sanctuary & Cafe!
, Jan 2020
Assigned a very knowledgeable and friendly guide (Becks). We were lucky to be in a small group, so we had much dedicated time. Becks brought us to a little island in the lake for a short walk to the lake "cafe"! Learnt quite a bit about the flora and fauna during the walk. Sandflies are not an issue at all once in the lake and on the little island. Highly recommend! Sweet ending was when quality photos were included in the package!
