Canoe Safari

Canoe Safari

Canoe safaris can be included as part of your overall Tanzania safari whether you are traveling through North or South Tanzania. You can follow the Kilombero River in the south of the country, passing hippos and crocodiles and floating through fishing villages, or canoe one of the Great Lakes, surrounded by huge flocks of bright pink flamingos! On the Kilombero you can paddle yourself or juat sit back and enjoy the ride.

Learn to control and manoeuvre the traditional Mitumbwhi Dugout Canoe and enjoy fishing by local methods. You can even go on a canoe safari on Little Momella Lake in Arusha National Park, overlooked by the majestic peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru. A canoe safari gives you a unique perspective on African life, wildlife and landscape - the view from the water is often breath-taking as you surprise mammals drinking, catch owls sleeping during the day, banter with local fishermen and slip quietly past pods of hippos grunting and snorting in the water by your canoe.

Canoeing takes the way you experience nature to a whole new level.

  • The programme was excellent and we saw masses of game, less a leopard! So, entirely happy customers. Thank you for your efficient handling of the whole trip.
