A unique perspective on Tanzanian wildlife and landscape

For the country with both the biggest and the deepest lake in Africa, Tanzania tourists 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.

Canoe and boat safarisWe started our canoeing operations in Lake Manyara National Park after El Nino flooded most of the park and a canoe was a very sensible means of game viewing.

This was the first adventure activity to be allowed in any Tanzanian National Park and we are still the only outfitter allowed to operate this activity for the parks. A well trained Mangokil Adventures guide will accompany your canoe safari.
