Enjoy a leisurely cruise around South Africa's stunning St Lucia Estuary (iSimangaliso Wetland Park) aboard a double-decker boat. Keep an eye out for crocodiles and hippos as you meander through wetland waters, along with possible sightings of eagles, vultures, African broadbills and dozens of other bird species. Enjoy onboard snacks (own expense) as you travel, savoring the surrounding scenery. St Lucia is an approximately 2.5-hour drive from Durban.
This day trip includes the expertise of a professional guide.
We opted for the late afternoon cruise as we heard the hippos were more active as evening comes. We were not disappointed. There were hundreds of hippos in the water, even lots of baby one! The boat was respectful and kept its distance but got close enough for us to see the animals. Fascinating experience, so glad we went. There weren't very many people on the boat so we had the entire upper/outside level to ourselves.
The trip was good except that when we arrived we had to wait for more than an hour to verify that I have paid and I was told I had a reference number that doesn't exist. This was embarrassing as I was treated like an intruder.
