Canoeing Safaris: 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 and in Lake Manyara National Park (water level permitted). This is all canoeing on lakes, not rivers and the safaris are no longer than 3-hours.
