Time to go for a paddle

The last full day of their nature tour in South Africa sees Stephanie and Adrian taking to the water once more in St Lucia.

Again, these waters contain both Hippos and Crocodiles, but this time Stephanie and Adrian are on Kayaks.

Paddling in the waters with Hippos and crocs doesn’t seem like such a good idea as you carry your paddle to the waters edge…

And they're off! Stephanie and Adrian glide across the surface leaving Justin to catch up with them

…but after the first few strokes of the paddle you are soaring across the water and all thoughts of turning back are gone from your mind.

Stephanie and Adrian leave Justin in their dust!

Lead by our trusty guide Justin, Stephanie and Adrian ventured out in search of the Hippos, Crocs and birdlife of the estuary.

Once more Adrian and Stephanie have decided that they’re not ready to leave South Africa yet.

But we caught them and brought them back!

Over so soon... can we go again please?!

 

Don’t worry you two, the estuary, the crocodiles, the hippos and the kayaks will still be here when you get back!

Missing a leg, Stephanie and Adrian finished their kayak unscathed...
