Can not rate this high enough , money well spent! Took my nan here for her birthday and she loved it. Saw plenty of crocs and learned a lot of history about Proserpine and the surrounds. Morning damper and tea was great and the bbq lunch was out of this world, do yourself a favour and do the safari tour!... More

A chance to experience crocs in as natural a habitat as you could possibly find them. A very knowledgeable tour guide, tasty catering and altogether a great experience.

Wasn't really sure what I would think of this tour but it was ally really good. The two guides were excellent. This time of year is a challenge when looking for crocs but Mark managed to locate several for us and one of the males even swam straight past our boat. Lunch was amazing and so was the damper and...

Although we only got to see 3 crocs for the day, we understand that this is nature and you can never guarantee it! The experience was still fabulous. The tour guide went to every effort possible to show us crocs and wildlife. The wildlife safari was enjoyable and we learnt so much from the guide. He made sure to interact... More

This is a fascinating day trip, great staff, Mark is very knowledgeable and makes the day fun and interesting. You will be in awe of some of the huge crocodiles in the river. They also serve up a great lunch and damper.

I thought this would be contrived and a bit cringy but it was far from it. The guides are genuine, entertaining, educative and without artifice. The boat ride was comfortable and unstaged, we did see some crocs (all of whom were known by name by the guides) but there was none of this raw meat/croc leaping showmanship. This was taking...

Went on the safari today with Mark and it was totally enjoyable. He was extremely knowledgable and was able to not only answer any question thrown at him he was very entertaining. Damper was superb and bbq and salads 2nd to none. Thanks to both Ian and Mark for making today such a great day.

An absolute must. Could not have asked for a better tour. Marc was extremely knowledgable and charismatic and made the trip very enjoyable. Awesome BBQ lunch, and a great afternoon exploring the flora/fauna. Would do this in a heartbeat again. Thanks

This was a fabulous tour, enjoyed by the whole family (kids 5 and 8). The guides were knowledgable, genuine bushmen, with terrible humour the kids loved. We saw heaps of crocs in their natural environment, ranging from 30cm to about 5m, swimming, sun baking...it was amazing. Food excellent, including vegetarian/vegan bbq. Great bush tour as well, we learnt heaps from... More

Visited there today and although we only saw 2 big crocs (as females are all out of sight making nests at this time of year) I still had an amazing day.
