Russell is a fantastic guide and knows everything there is to know about this river. The cruise itself is very pleasant and we did see quite a few birds including Giant and Half-collared Kingfishers. Plenty of ice-cold beer on sale, too;-)

Wow! This is a MUST! We came here renting a small boat you can drive yourself without any licence. Went along the river to a nice spot for a picnic and a swim. Lovely scenery so beautiful with birds chirping all over.

A 2 and a half hour ferry trip up the Keurbooms river, very well run and our guide, Russell, was so full of knowledge about the area. A slow cruise, and once you get past the water skiing section it becomes so quiet and peaceful....More

Rather than a ferry its across the river, its a cruise up the first 5km of the river over about 3 hours with a swim toilet stop on one of the river beaches. Our guide Russell had excellent knowledge of all the local history, flora,...More
