My trip to the Black River Safari tour

I went on this safari tour while I was 8 months pregnant.  It was a staff trip, which they didn't want to risk me going.  I had to threaten the team that the trip would be cancelled without me.  It was fun, the weather was nice and cool.  I was a bit nervous about going up close to the crocodiles but the guides were great and made it easy for us to see and take pictures.  We were amazed at the how they fed them so close with Chickens. 

Up the river you would also see the Mangrove trees with their roots cascading down in the waters.  You might even get a chance to climb the trees.  The river also meets with the YS River which is from the YS Falls further up the road.
