Great bird sightings
My first time in Africa and heard
the call of Africa – the cry of the
fish eagle, breathtaking!
Our guide was most informative,
he had a wealth of knowledgeable
about the animals, birds and
river life, we learnt a great deal.
The boat trip was great, it was
really exciting skimming across
the rapids and we enjoyed the
trip around the islands too.
Such a hot day –
but was cool on the boat.
