Prepare for a River Safari

What to Wear:   You can prepare yourself by wearing good footware such as tramping boots or sturdy shoes, charging up your camera and bringing a warm jacket.  You can bring along a small bag for your family or group.  If you have hat and sunglasses, great, bring them too.  There are some sandflies here but they add to the character of the place plus we have insect repellent if you need it.

We also provide warm Swanndri woolen coats and gum boots if your suitcase only contains sandels and shorts.

What to wonder:  Some people ask if this is a thrill ride.  It is most definately not, the jet boat is the mode of transport into scenery and nature so stunning that you will remember this river safari for the rest of your life.  One must do though, if you like to take photos, is to bring your camera fully charged with a spare SD card.
