ABOUT KAYAK MADAGASCAR

Our kayaking safaris are designed to give the paddlers an all round island experience for the entire family.

Introduction

We combine paddling across the calm waters around Nosy Be, Komba island and Mainland Madagascar to open ocean paddling around Iranja island and mainland Madagascar as well as visits to local villages, cocoa and ylang ylang plantations and a marine reserve.

Our kayaking safaris are suitable for all levels of paddlers as well as non paddlers. A support boat follows the group with your luggage and a cold box with refreshments. A group can be made up of paddlers and non paddlers. Any non paddlers can simply ride along in the support boat or if your level of fitness is not that great then no problem, climb into the support boat or the support boat will tow your kayak until you are ready to paddle again.



ENJOY THE ENVIRONMENT

We tend to lean our safaris more towards a casual type of paddling so this is not a race. Enjoy nature and the environment around you.
For those who wish to challenge each other then, by all means go ahead. For those who are wanting to experience the kayaking safari but don’t want to paddle at all, the entire route can be done with the support boat.



OUR EQUIPMENTS

Our equipments are all manufactured by a reputable South African company.

Kayaks

Our Kayaks are well renowned for their stability and sea worthiness. We have 4 doubles and a single “sit on top” sea kayaks with rudders.

Paddles

We have mostly wing blade paddles and 2 concave blade paddles. Your are welcome to bring your own paddle if you wish.

Life jackets

Our life jackets are all the ski type which are provided to each paddler. You will be perfectly safe.
