Pick up went well. Good introduction to the subject with the appropriate equipment. The guide, Joshua, is really great. Has excellent specialist knowledge which he is also good at imparting. He finds the animals with a sure eye and lures them with authentic calls. We particularly liked the calm and relaxed nature of the raft trip. Finishing off with a snack and drinks was really nice. We can highly recommend the tour.
