Canoeing on Momella – 01 Day

Momella Lakes Tanzania, 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, water buck and bush buck.

The Arusha National Park is home to good numbers of beautiful tall blonde giraffes which are also seen near the lake areas. After your canoeing experience, enjoy a picnic lunch at a nearby site with afternoon game drive en-route before returning to Arusha.
