2. Day Safari with Boat Cruise or Canoe Experience

**Our boat cruise and canoe offering is momentarily suspended due to the rivers’ low water levels, caused by the extreme drought the Eastern Cape is currently experiencing. We look forward getting it back into operation as soon as possible.**

Feeling adventurous? We also offer the option to add on a boat cruise or canoe experience onto your Day Safari. This affords you an exciting opportunity to experience the reserve from a whole new perspective.
