    Our family spent a couple of days in Franz Josef. Our guide, Dale, led the cruise and bush walk on Mapourika. He is so passionate about the flora and fauna in the area and was a wealth of knowledge. We had a great time.

    I am not too sure about the timing in the morning. We took the afternoon cruise. Franz Joseph is a small township. You can easily find a place to book as soon as you arrive.
