J. Charles Swaby’s Black River Crocodile Safari.
At both sides of the Black River are tour operators who go on Safari on the Black River.
1500 acres of protected wetland with springwater Broad River and Black River coming from the Cockpit Country Mountains. The river looks black indeed, it’s because of clay sediment, the water is as clear as springwater could be. Mangrove forest, a great amount of bird species, large fresh water fish. And ofcourse the main attraction: wild American Crocodiles. Huge ancient creatures that gracefully swim in their clear springwater protected environment free to go anywhere they like.
The site also has a sanctuary where you could hold a baby Crocodile, if you’re lucky.
Resorts charges 150$ pp. we payed 57$ for 3 persons, travelling with our rented car at 50$ a day.
On the way back from Black River we stopped at Dor’s Belmont Sands / Blue Oceans Sands for lunch. Great wide view over the blue ocean. The bar/ restaurant is: Low profile, attracts lots of locals and has good food. We had chicken wraps, fried calimari, fresh fish soup.
Very good food, go and try for yourselves.
