The Safari Plus story:
When the sit-on-top was an emerging design because of the ease of getting on and off the boat, we wanted a kayak that had an uncompromised performing hull – something that really went against the norm.
We wanted a boat that would provide the performance of a sit-in kayak, with all the convenience of a sit-on-top, which led to the introduction of the Double Tunnel Hull Technology and the Safari Plus.
It was a big challenge for our design team, and we broke some new territory in the development, and couldn’t be happier with the outcome. The Safari Plus has rewarded us by being a very popular model.
What’s in a name?
The Safari Plus is an evolution of the original Safari, with alterations to the deck and the user-friendliness, hence the name Safari Plus.
It’s a boat to use when going on an adventure. During development, our test paddlers felt confident to go into areas and do things they hadn’t done before. One commented that it was like going on a Safari. As an added bonus, you can even fish from it.
