Canoe Safari


Details of Canoe Safari

A relaxing way to get closer to nature

Canoe safaris perfectly combine the excitement of a game drive with the relaxation of being out on the water in a place of great natural beauty.

Accompanied by a qualified guide, canoeists glide over the smooth lake water and take in the sights of giraffes, buffalo, elephants, hippos, waterbuck, bushbuck, and more. You can also expect to spot a huge variety of bird life.

If you're on safari in Tanzania, you can include a canoe safari in either Arusha National Park or Lake Manyara National Park. In Kenya, the waters of Lake Naivasha are a popular place to spot hippos and water birds, while also being your gateway to a walking safari in nearby Crescent Island.

For those staying in Arusha town, canoe excursions can also be arranged on Lake Duluti.


Short Overview

Canoe safaris are a great way to see a park from a different perspective, combining the thrill of exploration with the relaxation of being out on the water and at the heart of nature's beauty.
