Canoening and Boating


About canoening and boating in Tanzania

Embarking on a canoe or boat journey through the secluded waterways of Tanzania offers a unique and close-up perspective of its landscapes and wildlife. Canoe and boating safaris provide an opportunity to silently navigate channels, rivers, and lakes, allowing for immersive nature encounters. Witness animals grazing along the shores or observe hippos bobbing in the water with minimal disruption.

Favored destinations for canoeing include Rubondo Island National Park, where you can spot chimpanzees and crocodiles. The Rufiji River’s meandering mangrove tributaries near Selous Game Reserve offer captivating paddling adventures. Paddling on Lake Natron unveils flamingos, while the Great Ruaha River flowing through Ruaha National Park provides another scenic route. Extended camping trips take you deep into the heart of Tanzania’s wilderness.

During the rainy season, kayaking, rafting, and boating safaris are available in national parks like Lake Manyara and Tarangire, taking advantage of the increased water levels in channels. Expert guides navigate the routes, offering insights into wildlife, vegetation, and local cultures along the shores. These water excursions also present ample photography opportunities to capture intimate moments in nature.

Whether by canoe, kayak, or small boat, this safari experience offers an unforgettable closeness to Tanzania’s aquatic ecosystems and wildlife. Gliding quietly along waterways opens up a world of wild adventure, serenity, and discovery, providing a refreshing alternative to the more crowded land safaris. For those who cherish water-based experiences, canoe and boating safaris offer an ideal escape in Tanzania.
