Very nice place right on the brink of the crocodile river. One of the very few places where the pictures are actually a true reflection. A great place to sit back, relax and take in the sites. Definitely recommend this one.

This is a beautiful place, and very relaxing. There is some nice viewing of animals in the river. It was three days in paradise!
