Canoeing on the Goukamma River offers superb birding, saturated photo opportunities and tranquil stops to infuse yourself with the vitality of nature.
The Goukamma River traverses the Goukamma Nature Reserve, which is managed by Cape Nature. The river is easily accessed from the Buffalo Bay road, West of Knysna.
Despite the tannin stained water, the reflection of golden fossil dunes and blue skies provide a myriad of photographic compositions.
For birders, canoeing offers a silent, non invasive method of approaching owls and kingfishers.
