More about Hippo & Croc Boat Cruise

The iSimangaliso Wetland Park in KwaZulu-Natal not only boasts the highest concentration of hippos in South Africa, but is also a World Heritage Site. There is no better way to explore this pristine estuary than by taking a luxurious boat trip manned by a team of knowledgeable guides.

The boat trip affords views of the second-highest vegetated dunes in the world, pristine mangroves and oyster banks. There’s a high likelihood of seeing hippos and crocodiles basking in the sun. Departing from St Lucia, it is a gently paced tour with frequent stops and a must for nature lovers.

Loved the cruise! very informative, relaxing and beautiful sightings :)

Gerhard Oosthuizen

Well organised, good boat. The guide provided us with some good information and we were able to see a few pods of Hippo very close to the boat. Great experience.

Loerie Toere

Wonderfull experience my groups had thus far, staff friendly and entertaining! A must for every visitor in St Lucia

Debbie Nottelmann

The cruise was prompt to leave the dock, informative and pleasant. We saw hippos in the water, on the banks sleeping, in a group grazing and a nile croc along the bank. I would recommend this company as the boat was also comfortable.

St. Lucia

The small KwaZulu-Natal coastal town is on the tip of one of the most biodiverse areas in the world.
