Tour Details



This trip far exceeded our lofty expectations. Words alone cannot describe the magic of this experience. 

Mark S.

Boat cruises on the river with animals on either side were exciting, quiet, peaceful and truly spiritual, all at once! My favorite thing about this tour as a whole was the absence of other tourists. It was private and personal. A totally fabulous experience!
