Fannas – the Spirit of St Lucia and Born Free are the transport of choice on the waters of Lake St Lucia. The two boats are skippered by people who know the lake well, and the tour commentators are experienced guides. Hippopotamus and crocodiles are the main attraction on the lake, but there is a variety of birdlife too – and some fascinating landscapes such as mangrove swamps and mudflats.
The boats are powered by smoke-free motors, have a licensed bar and toilet facilities. Fannas even has kitchen facilities for hot meals. This boat is ideal for office parties, conferences, weddings and other functions. Advance booking is essential.
Ten percent of the fare received by the boat tours is donated to nature conservation. St Lucia Safaris is also a one-stop tourist information and reservation office where tours to Cape Vidal, deep-sea fishing charters, horse-riding, kayaking and game drives can be arranged.
