“Great way to see the jungle and mangroves ” - We spent a very nice day with Percy. Trip includes a boat tour of the mangroves and river, and a hike along a jungle trail. We did not catch or hold any crocodiles like in the pictures, but saw quite a few of them, along...

“Percy ” - Read the very consistent reviews below. Percy's great. He's fun, with positively encyclopedic knowledge of the area and its human, plant, bird and animal life. Monkey River would be interesting to visit with any guide but I'd highly recommend Percy. He made for a really...
