Arusha National Park Day Safari Canoeing Trip Itinerary
0800 Hours: Arusha National Park Day Safari canoeing trip departs from your hotel to Arusha National Park. The drive takes about an hour.
0900 Hours: After presentation on safety procedures, you will canoe for 2.5 Hours on the Small Momella Lake, with great views of the forest back drop.
A canoe safari is a wonderful way to view wildlife in their natural surroundings while being a bit physically active. The trip consists in a circumnavigation of the entire Little Momella Lake, which takes about 2 .5 hours. Around every bend and there are many, a different vista.
The perspective, from essentially ground-level, is entirely different from that offered on foot or in a vehicle and the opportunity to get in some fairly rigorous exercise (if you’re of a mind to do so) extremely welcome after so many hours in an airline seat.
You will be within a few yards of several giraffe at the water’s edge, drinking and watching, with considerable interest, as you glide by the many birds. You may also see a lazy cape buffalo lounging on the bank, within spitting distance or even sharing the same territory as a hippo family.
Other great photographic opportunities include waterbuck, black and white colobus monkeys and bushbuck. There are over 600 species of birds in the park. On clear days one can see Mount Meru and Kilimanjaro in a distance – all from the exciting luxury stable two-person canoes.
Guests canoe on their own canoes around the various small bays in the lake finding new adventures around every corner. The Arusha National Park is home to good numbers of beautiful tall blonde giraffes which are also seen near the lake areas.
1200 Hours: After your canoeing experience, enjoy a picnic lunch by the water.
1300 Hours: After lunch, you enjoy an afternoon game drive. There is a small crater to visit where one can see both Mount Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro if the weather is good.
1500 Hours: Enjoy a game drive en route back to Arusha.
1700 Hours: Arrive back in Arusha and drop off at your hotel/ residence.
