Boat Safaris- Tanzaniaboat safaris


The soft chug of an outboard engine, or the whispering flap of a canvas sail; the so-called blue safaris in Tanzania are a tranquil and relaxing way to watch wildlife, enjoy snorkeling, or simply admire the beautiful scenery of the waters edge. This is one of the best ways to see the Selous Game Reserve, up the huge muddy brown sweep of the Rufiji River, spotting hundreds of resident hippos and crocodiles. Sail into chimpanzee territory on a dhow, skimming over the fresh, crystal waters of Lake Tanganyika to Mahale Mountains National Park, or travel up the Wami River in Saadani, surrounded by amazing birdlife, hippos and crocodiles. Visit the Indian Ocean islands, sometimes several in a day, enjoying the coral reefs, marine life and birds of each island along the way
