Franklin River

I was particularly impressed by the level of knowledge and professionalism exhibited by the river guides, Shaun and Anna. Whether it be tackling a difficult rapid, describing the fauna, flora and history of the area, preparing the campsite, producing amazing meals or subtly directing and supporting me in potentially dangerous situations, I always felt completely safe and comfortable.

traveller reviews

Scott who gave us the briefing went above and beyond the call. He picked is up from the airport when our plane was delayed and we were going to be late for the briefing. He was professional and made the experience even more memorable.
