St Lucia estuary one of the best things is that it not only gives you an experience about kayaking which in itself an adventure tourism activity but what adds to the thrill furthermore is that it is also an action-packed adventure activity wherein you will have close encounters with animals of the wild.
St Lucia estuary is filled with Africa’s most dangerous animals and the safari is probably one of the craziest things it offers to tourists it is also known as iSimangaliso Wetland Park which is a UNESCO world heritage site for its diverse wildlife and swampy forests and the park is located in three different countries i.e. South Africa, Mozambique, and Swaziland.
This is for sure one of the most unique kayaking trips you’ll ever take. The kayaking trip here will be of long hours close to nature and wildlife you’ll ever get
So why do this?
The mere idea of doing kayaking and that too with crocodiles in enough for any adventure freak to come and try it and another good thing is that it is not a private thing no travel agency or anyone offers this but instead South Africa’s govt does this so this is clearly untamed Africa.
Kayaking in itself is dangerous and doing so in such conditions with wild animals is going to be an altogether a different experience and a deadly combo.
The scary thing is that that the waters are shallow not too deep with an average of 1m so never put your hands or feet in water cause you’ll never know what’s lurking below your boat.
This will not only satisfy your adrenaline rush but also keep you asking for more.
