What people are saying about St Lucia
Our guide Skigh knows what he is doing and has interesting information about animals, birds and what it is like to have grown up in this country with many problems, there is a small breakfast, then lunch is grilled in the park! This is not a classic game drive tour, you should go to other parks. The nature in this park is incomparable and definitely worth a trip!
It was nothing short of amazing ! Loved every minute from spotting a number of different beautiful animals to the amazing sea view at breakfast and the delicious braai lunch . Our guide made sure that the trip is the most .
