    ... It is wheelchair friendly and amazing for everyone to enjoy. As we walk, there is a warning that there are no hand rails, so be careful. As we walk we spot some crocodiles sunning on the beach across the river, of course there is no sun, just dark clouds. We continue walking and being careful. Time for our cruise.

Nothing jumped out at me. Ate Ostrich burger, it's red meat! Very nice. Went and checked camera traps, changed SD card and batteries.
