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 started our canoeing safari 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 our guide will accompany your canoe safari.

The Momella Lakes, located in the Arusha National Park, are a collection of multiple lakes. Underground water channels mostly feed the lakes and the water level tables are supported by rainfall at various times of the year. The water feeding into the lake is rich in minerals of varying types allowing various types of bird life to be attracted to the lakes like flamingoes, little grebes, herons, Egyptian geese and lots more.
The canoeing on Momella Lakes actually takes place on Small Momella Lake, with great views of the forest back drop. The canoeing on the lake is relaxing and mildly adventurous.
In the distance lay the sleepy hippos basking in the sun, content with the visual sighting of the lake and its familiar home territory. Other great photographic opportunities include buffaloes, waterbuck and bushbuck.
