2 bis 5 Tage Mosambik Camping Kajak Safari | Drucken |  E-Mail

Die Insel Inhaca liegt in Mosambik, etwa 35 km von Maputo entfernt. Ihre Safari beginnt in Mosambiks Hauptstadt Maputo. Von Maputo geht es mit der Fähre nach Inhaca. Dort erkunden Sie auf einer Kajak-Tour bis zu 5 Tagen lang die Insel mit ihren Küstenabschnitten, Mangroven, Sümpfen, Wäldern. Sie übernachten auf einfachen Zeltplätzen mit Trinkwasseranschluss. Es gibt zwei Safari-Varianten: mit und ohne Selbstverpflegung. Wir erarbeiten derzeit die deutsche Übersetzung der Tourbeschreibung - bitte lesen Sie solange die englische Version.

Tour Option 1 - is a self-contained excursion where everything, used at each overnight camp, is stowed away in the kayak. This option allows us more manoeuverability around the island but is more basic than the second option, a "permanent camp" package. We meet on Day 1 at Maputo Harbour to take the ferry across to Portuguese Island (about 1,5 hours). Minimum of 6 people to confirm departure.

Tour Option 2 - caters for a gentler paddle. We kayak during the coolness of the day in the morning and again in the late afternoon. Each trip is to a different destination returning to the base camp every evening. The reef is positioned right next to a sandy beach, so it is just a matter of walking into the water to start snorkeling.

Other activities include walking in the nearby forest or around to the open sea. One can also observe the locals fishing or harvesting marine life at low tide.The evenings are spent in a very comfortable camp, hot water showers, large tents under a canopy of trees and a freezer to keep beverages cool. A chef, from the island stays at camp and prepares all meals. We meet on Day 1 at Maputo Harbour to take the ferry across to Portuguese Island (about 1,5 hours).

Fitness - is not a prerequisite for Option 2, but a relative degree of fitness would help to make Option 1 more enjoyable

Paddling - The distance we paddle in one day is between 10 and 25 km. Paddling is interspersed with snorkeling, walking and birding. There are 300 species of bird on the island. Sites we visit include the coral reefs, mangrove swamps, indigenous forests and the shore - lines of open or exposed ocean. We will only paddle within the protected bays of the island and not in the open ocean. We will however spend some time swimming and or snorkeling along the shores of the ocean; a very short walk is required to get to some of these spots.

The Island - is situated in the very south of Mocambique directly across the bay from Maputo; a 35 km boat ride from main land to island. It is pounded by the surf along its eastern shoreline, but it's southern and western shores have created a protected environment within which to paddle and snorkel.  Spanning some 12 km long and about 7 km at its widest, Inhaca Island is home to a plethora of habitats and wildlife.  It is also home to a community of people making a living both from the sea and from agricultural activities. The human population is concentrated mainly along the north - western section of the island where there is a hotel, a few lodges and a village. There is much activity after the day's catch and the restaurants in the village provide delightful meals fresh from the sea.  Island bread, or pao, cold beer and fresh fish are the perfect ingredients for a lazy, midday meal.   

Since 1976 part of the island and some of the shores have been protected as natural reserves. The reserve is managed from the Biological Station.  Built in 1951, this international research center has been and still remains a source of information to the visitor with its vast array of collections of the marine and terrestrial life to be found on the island and its shores. A visit to the mangroves is a must.  The bird life within the mangroves together with the other animal inhabitants, including the giant mud crab, are numerous. It has been said that the dive reefs off Inhaca Island can compare with the best in the world. The surrounding sea is home to many game fish and sightings of other marine life include Marlin, Hump Back Whale (in season), Whale shark, the dugong and four different species of turtle.  An excellent snorkeling spot is Ponta Torres near Santa Maria, where huge shoals of game fish move through the narrow opening between the island and the mainland. Another reef to be enjoyed is the Coral Gardens, situated alongside the Biology Station.

Campsites - We make use of designated campsites. These campsites have fresh water, which we only use for washing. Ablution consists of basic long drop. We bring in all camping equipment, which includes drinking water. The base campsite is set in a beautiful and protected bay within the forested areas ensuring shade from the heat of the day.  Apart from the beautiful surroundings, coral reefs and forests these campsites offer no other basic amenities.  We bring in everything to ensure the campsite is as comfortable as possible. Our two man tents, which you can stand up in, are fitted with air mattresses (lilos) ensuring a comfortable night's rest.  Bedding such as sleeping bags needs to be supplied by yourselves. A gazebo is used for dining and relaxing.  Showers and camp chairs are also provided. All cooking and maintenance of the camp is carried out by camp staff/guides. Cooler boxes are available to keep beverages cold. This camp ensures that your stay will be as comfortable and pleasant as possible.  There is a wonderful coral reef right at the camp site providing easy access to as much great snorkeling as you want.

Kayak equipment - Our boats are durable, robust and very comfortable. They are also stable and cut through the water with ease. They are two man sit in sea kayaks made of polyethelene. A spray deck is available to place over the cockpit when required. Each person is fitted with a life jacket or personal floatation device. The required safety equipment, such as flares, compass and first aid kit are in the guide's boat.
