Tanzania: River Cruise

Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Kilimanjaro...

Tanzania River Cruise

Tanzania's wonderful location on the Indian Ocean means there are ample opportunities for taking a variety of boat tours. Visitors can book a cruise in Zanzibar, Dar es Aslaam or in Pangini. Pangini's peaceful location is the perfect place to watch hippos and crocodiles. The never ending coconut plantations are also a memorable site. Sit back and watch the sun set. Boating safaris are also fast becoming a popular alternative for safari-goers. Water-safaris offer a break from longer game-viewing and give visitors the opportunity to get out in the open and see tremendous amounts of bird-life and water species up close including hippos and crocodiles. At present, boating safaris for game-viewing are only permitted in the Selous Game Reserve, where the Rufigi River, the Great Ruaha River, and numerous lakes give visitors a choice of many expeditions to choose from.
