    This was an awesome tour. We traveled up and down the river and saw a myriad of birds, crocodiles, and other creatures. Our guide was very alert to the wildlife and pointed them out to us.

    I don’t know the exact address, Best to email them with driving directions. After we finished our very good lunch that was served we walked about 5 minutes to the boat.

    I reviewed the Jungle Crocodile Safari, I do not work there. This question should be directed to them. I do know that they work with many cruise ships!
