Followed by a traditional dhow and crew, your kayak safari is an adventurous exploration into river mouths, pristine mangrove estuaries and tiny pristine island bays. The dhow will meet you for meals and relaxation, offering you respite from the water and sun, delicious snacks and seafood dishes, to keep you paddling.
