SAW something special

Dear ALL


We ( Natasha and I ) and 18 passengers , were fortunate on Sunday morning at 08h00 to see something exceptionally special !


Crocodiles mating ! And able to photograph it !


I've been on the water for almost 10 years , and in 10 years this is now only the 2nd time that I've actually SEEN the crocs mating .


During the mating season , males attract females by bellowing , slapping their snouts in the water, blowing water out of their noses , and making a variety of noises .The larger males of a population tend to be more successful . Once a female has been attracted , the pair wabble and rub underside of their jaws together . Females lay eggs about 2 months after mating .


For the next 6 months we will be on our summer departure times for the Hippo/Croc Tours which is 10h00 , 12h00 , 14h00 and 16h00 and then adding an additional 08h00 tour if there is bigger demand !


It's actually beautiful on the water so early in the morning !


Accommodation in St Lucia was very fully booked over the long weekend , but if possible , try and keep in touch with us if you do have empty rooms , as if someone then walks into the office we know where to refer them to .


WHALE WATCHING was awesome this weekend ! Many trips , the weather was kind for most of the weekend and lots of happy customers !


There is only about 35days before The Greater St Lucia Wetland Park will be known as iSimangaliso Wetland Park  - this new name will come into effect as from 1 November 2007 .


Warm Regards
