The fish eagles watches Sonja and Christoph to make sure they don't steal his supper!

But there are not just birds,  don’t forget the countless numbers of crocodiles in these waters!

The last full day of their nature tour in South Africa sees Stephanie and Adrian taking to the water once more in St Lucia.

Again, these waters contain both Hippos and Crocodiles, but this time Stephanie and Adrian are on Kayaks.

Paddling in the waters with Hippos and crocs doesn’t seem like such a good idea as you carry your paddle to the waters edge…

And they're off! Stephanie and Adrian glide across the surface leaving Justin to catch up with them

…but after the first few strokes of the paddle you are soaring across the water and all thoughts of turning back are gone from your mind.

Stephanie and Adrian leave Justin in their dust!

Lead by our trusty guide Justin, Stephanie and Adrian ventured out in search of the Hippos, Crocs and birdlife of the estuary.

Once more Adrian and Stephanie have decided that they’re not ready to leave South Africa yet.

Stephanie and Adrian try to paddle off into the sunset together.

But we caught them and brought them back!

Over so soon... can we go again please?!

Don’t worry you two, the estuary, the crocodiles, the hippos and the kayaks will still be here when you get back!

Missing a leg, Stephanie and Adrian finished their kayak unscathed...

Lots of people on the water today here on St Lucia Estuary!

For our early morning cruise we had Manvela Threle & Martin Cruces who pulled themselves out of bed to be at the slipway for 7am, but said that it was well worth it!

And then at 10am we had Lara Spiellofer, Sima Faih, Fah Marhh,Suter Leanda,Bollige Matthias,Bigna Stoheli,Fah Susi,Fa’h Hansrheidi.

They were all amazed at just how big the Goliath Heron is close up, not to mention the size of the crocodile that we found basking in the sun.

Even the crocodiles are enjoyin the sun today!

And of course not forgetting the Hippos!

Sometimes playing spot the hippo is more difficult...

Even without the animals the scenery is beautiful as you drift along the estuary.

Who’s next??!

Todays guests!
