Kayak and Walk Overnight Tour

´╗┐Our overnight tours are temporarily unavailable. If your are interested in any of these, please contact us.

You kayak with your guide to a narrow stream lined with aerial-rooted mangrove trees. We kayak slowly up the stream on our way to the campsite.

Once we arrive at the campsite, you are free to do what you like for a while. You can stretch your legs and wander around the area. You could take a dip in the stream to cool off and clean up after the kayak journey.

Whilst you are doing that, your guides will make the finishing touches to the camp and prepare the evening meal. Then we eat!

When we have finished, we go for a night walk to explore the area in the dark. This will give you a very different perspective and the chance to see creatures that are not active in the day time.

In the morning, we get up early and have another walk around on the land. We return to the campsite for breakfast and then take the kayaks to explore a different stream, before heading back to Gee’s Nature Tours. For those who would prefer not to kayak back, the boat that comes to pick up the camping gear can take you back.

Please note that, during the dry season, the water in the stream is salty. This is the only place for swimming and for getting water for washing.

Please also note that this is at a different location and a very different type of stream to the Mangrove Kayak Overnight Tour.

What you need

Because this tour is mostly in the afternoon, night and early morning, the sun is less of a concern. However, it could still get pretty hot and sunny during this tour on the kayak journeys to and from the campsite. Therefore, you should have clothes that provide decent coverage or sunscreen. A hat is also a good idea.

Any comfortable footwear is OK for this tour but closed footwear is recommended, particularly for the night walk element. It is a good idea to have some footwear that is easy to slip on (e.g. flip-flops) in case you need to get up in the night.

We advise you to bring a camera or at least a phone that can take a decent picture.

Mosquito repellent.
