Canoeing Safari

Our Unique Perspective on Tanzanian Wildlife and Landscape

For the country with both the biggest and the deepest lake in Africa, Tanzania visitors have relatively little opportunity for canoeing safaris. The only areas where game viewing can be done from a canoe are in Arusha National Park, Lake Duluti and in Lake Manyara National Park (if water level is sufficient). This is all canoeing on lakes, not rivers and the safaris are no longer than 3-hours.

We do our canoeing operations in Lake Manyara National Park, most of the park and a canoe are very sensible means of game viewing. 


Canoeing Arusha National Park

Enjoy a peaceful and scenic canoeing safari following the shorelines of small Momella Lake. On this 2- 2.5 hours canoe safari you can view buffaloes, bushbuck, giraffes, hippos and many water birds living in and close to the water.

  • Where do we meet: Small Lake Momella (inside Arusha National Park)
  • Equipment used: stable 2-persons fiber glass canoes

Visitors will need to pay a Conservation Park Fee to be able to enter the park and a canoeing park fee at the North Park Gate.

Canoeing Lake Manyara National Park

Lake Manyara National Park is home to an incredible array of bird life, including thousands of pink-hued flamingos. You can get very close to giraffes, elephants, buffalos and other animals grazing on the shoreline. All from the comfort of your canoe. Enjoy the breathtaking scenery and the beauty that surrounds you on this 2.5 hours canoe safari .


Canoeing Lake Duluti

Glide across the smooth surface of this small lake and view birdlife seldom seen; 
  • giant kingfisher 
  • Fish eagle
  • Darters etc.

The lake is surrounded by forested crater walls. This is a special about 1.5 hour of canoeing experience.
