We offer canoeing around Durban at uMngeni Adventures (Blue Lagoon, Durban), where you can paddle up the river to Conought Bridge and down towards the river mouth.
On the guided tour; our experienced community guides will take you out and give you an insight into the river’s exciting bird life, flora and history of the estuary. Along the way, you will be able to spot Cormorants, Egyptian Geese, Fish Eagles, Pelicans or even the rare Mangrove Kingfisher in winter months. The uMngeni River is famous for its beautiful estuary, where the river’s freshwater joins the salty sea water, creating the perfect environment for a huge mangrove population with their unique purpose in the ecosystem. You will also learn about the river’s interesting history of being diverted from its original stream through Durban Harbour to Blue Lagoon.
