There's a reason it's called the 8th wonder of the world.... with towering peaks, cascading waterfalls and amazing wildlife.The journey is just as spectacular as the destination itself. Once there, go on a leisurely and informative Nature cruise.

Do you think it is suitable for families with young kids to visit in July? I have heard people complaining about long drives and being absolutely exhausted whilst only spending 1.5 hour on the boat and rest is on the bus
