Just past Ifakara, there is a ferry over the Kilombero river. We offer canoe trips in a large dugout canoe, so you can relax while you are punted upstream with a long pole. Its likely you’ll see hippos, crocodiles, Nile monitor lizards and many many birds, including the endemic Kilombero Weaver and if you’re really lucky, a shoebill. The canoe trip can be as long as you wish, from just half an hour, to a full day with a picnic on a sandbank. You’ll see many fishermen in their smaller dugout boats and at the ferry, there are many stalls cooking very tasty fresh fish. Excellent for birding enthusiasts!
