We then descend to the river to take the River Trip, on this trip we expect to see we monkeys, close up viewing of various birds including beautiful kingfishers and majestic fish eagles and palm-nut vultures. We may even be lucky enough to see a crocodile. We will also have a glimpse into the lives of families along the river.
