Phillip, my mokoro poler was excellent. He was knowledgeable about the delta and its ecosystem. We did a lengthy bush walk, where because of Phillip’s knowledge and expertise, I was fortunate enough to see wildebeest, impalas, hippopotamus, and a number of bird species. Thank you for a fantastic experience Phillip!
