It’s official Heritage Tours & Safaris second Hippo & Croc Tour Boat was launched this morning, the uniqueness of these two smaller but more exclusive vessels gives one a closer and more exclusive tour on the St Lucia Estuary. The vessels may only carry a total of 15 passengers per tour, compared to the other vessels that carry up to 90 clients per outing. The more personal Tours offered by Heritage Tours & Safaris gives a in-depth look at the estuary as the vessels have a very shallow draft thus getting close to some extra ordinary sightings, with a draft of only 20cm one can just imagine the incredible possibilities.
Each Skipper/Guide has been employed with both a marine and bush background each Skipper/Guide has all of the required certifications and qualifications and a wealth of information. Enjoy African Eagles hunting above the mangroves while witnessing the yawns of the Hippo’s. The photographic opportunities are endless on these Hippo & Croc Tours, make sure though that you have adequate batteries and memory cards prior to departure.
The second vessel will also offer exclusive catering opportunities while steaming up the St Lucia Estuary, as Heritage Tours & Safaris is also allowed to stop and beach along the banks of the estuary this will offer you a splendid opportunity to explore the iSimanagliso Wetland Park by foot.
The St Lucia Estuary the largest in Africa is home to approximately 800 Hippo’s and 1200 Nile Crocodiles with an abundance of Bird-life along the banks. The Hippo & Croc Boat Tours depart daily and every 2 hours with the high season being incredibly busy, prior bookings are essential especially for the Sunrise and Sunset trips.
