I went up the river in a reasonably stable canoe with my guide and another couple and their guide and the pole man at the rear. We saw abundant birds and deer and all was lovely and relaxing until a marsh mugger crocodile sidled up to our canoe. He was clunked hard on the head with the pole and he opened his mouth wide and barrel rolled and fortunately moved a little away. With our eyes finally off the crocodile we realized a rhino was on the riverbank in front of us. My guide whispered to keep very still and that he was frightened witless and to make for the bank if he charged, zig zagging as much as possible. The rhino entered the water in front of us and sauntered slowly across the river and clambered up the opposite bank. My advice to all----there are NO safety precautions on these tours and certainly no medical facilities to handle mishaps. If you are fleet-footed and have the presence of mind to dart and weave in the path of a charging rhino ( and these things look huger when not viewed through a zoo safety fence), you will be fine.
