The cruise is a very relaxing way to take in the surroundings of the Yellow Water and South Alligator Rivers in Kakadu. I didn’t know what to expect of this cruise. I hadn’t done any research and just wanted to take what came. It turned out to be a great, informative tour. We were lucky for this one and a half hour cruise to be extended to almost two hours. Although it didn’t please our driver.
We were able to see so much flora and fauna, it was incredible. Many of my photos didn’t turn out as well as I wanted to because the birds were hiding on the banks of the rivers. About one third of Australia’s bird species can be found in Kakadu. Whistling ducks and Magpie Geese were the birds we saw in most places. We also saw a lot of crocodiles, both in the water and on the banks of the rivers.
We were warned not to move around on the boat in case it toppled over. It was a small boat so we certainly took heed of the warning.
This was our boat. It would be no match for a crocodile so we all had to be very careful not to move around much.
It may look like this crocodile is about to attack but he was really just cooling himself down. Luckily for us.
The scenery is so beautiful in one of the most remote areas of Australia.
This is considered a ‘large’ crocodile. We learned the body of a croc is seven times larger than the head. Most of the body is hidden below the water. He was just minding his own business.
