These deadly dangerous creatures are not just thrilling to watch –they’ll fill you with dread and delight at the same time. Talk about a rush of adrenalin!
You will be taken on a tractor-drawn wagon-train to see huge salt-water crocodiles in the wetlands. There are plenty of rare birds, reptiles, marine creatures and mammals here too. You’ll see about 200 dangerous saltwater crocodiles, some of the most dangerous in the world. These safaris also introduce you to the way the natives live. Food consists of damper bread cooked on coals and fresh billy tea.
