It is an advisable experience, you get to see hippos ans crocodiles in St Lucia, and many other animals in the park, such as giraffes, impalas, zebras, rhinos, elephants... Vusi is a great guide and he knows a lot about the animals. Be prepared, though, for a long drive!

Terribly sorry for misunderstanding, we are very happy to hear that the tour guides tried their best to keep you happy, unfortunately there was a network problem that day so i couldn't hear you properly, on your request of open vehicle game drive, i tried to explain to you why we can't do it on our day tours. Open vehicles game drives start at 6am and finish 9am and again at 5pm and finish 8pm the gates at the Park close at 18:00PM, so the only open vehicle game drive we have is on the overnight tour Apologies Extremely Unfriendly Manager
