Kayaking on Swartvlei

Swartvlei is a great fun for all level of kayakers. The more experienced will power their way across the middle of the vlei and the more careful will hug the shore. All levels can explore the two rivers that feed the lagoon. The lagoon discharges to the sea but it is not possible for Mr Sharky to navigate up into the vlei.

The water was warm and I swam on the way back. I saw a couple of older kayakers with electric motors bird watching and one person fishing. On my return to Lakeside Lodge & Spa I tied up to their jetty to have a barbecue on their lawn and my good intentions to go out again were doused by a couple of glasses of fine wine and the comfy lounger on the lawn.
