BITOU & KEURBOOMS RIVER CANOEING
BITOU RIVER & WETLAND, KEURBOOMS RIVER GORGE & KEURBOOMS LAGOON CANOEING ECO-ADVENTURES
The Keurbooms Lagoon is an iconic feature of Plettenberg Bay and is regulated by tidal activity which not only influences the Lagoon. The Keurbooms River snakes through a vegetated gorge and the open expansive system of channels and wetlands of the Bitou River.
While paddling the Keurbooms Lagoon one is exposed to the beauty of the area as we gently glide alongside bird Island which is a Peninsula and host to the largest breeding colony of Kelp Gulls. Keep an eye out for the African Black Oystercatcher and many others. The Keurbooms Gorge has an awe-inspiring appeal with many small and secluded beaches amidst the towering gorge dense with vegetation where we can rest up and have refreshments. The Bitou River section winds its way up a channel through a wetland system where birds abound including regular sightings of Blue Crane and even the odd sighting of the Western Osprey Eagle or the iconic African Fish Eagle.
Due to the magnificence and position of the Keurbooms/Bitou River systems and Keurbooms Lagoon along the Garden Route, the African Edu-Eco Wizard team has devised passive, guided Experiential Canoeing Eco-Adventures for all passive adventurers. We not only focus on the canoeing aspect of the adventure but also the interpretive value of the surrounding vegetation, the system and birds that abound.
A maximum group size of 12 people can be accommodated. Our lead guides are very highly qualified, survivors in their own right, educators and teachers who love sharing and teaching what they know. Herewith are details of the canoeing adventures which can be enjoyed either in the early to mid-morning or mid-late afternoon depending on your availability.
