Our customer experience
great day out, great guide, well organised, beautiful scenery. awesome
Had a great guide named Ibrahim who was welcoming and spoke 4 different languages. Although he’s been doing this for nearly 20yrs he made it feel like the first time and didn’t look bored. He knew how many were in the group and everything was well organised from the time we arrived until we returned to the camp. Ibrahim knew the river so well and navigated us expertly. The food back at camp was good and considering the price for the day it was well worth it. We were allowed to jump off a platform near the end which was great fun, even little kids were allowed to do it, something impossible in the UK! The scenes down the river were just amazing and we even swam in the calmer areas too. Water so fresh and clear. You can also do ziplining halfway down but we chose to have a break and dry off. Be sure to bring suitable footwear (rubber shoes) not flip flops but you can buy it all at the camp site too. We had to buy some footwear but ended up using it for quad biking too. Well recommend.
