African Walking Safaris

If you are reasonably fit, don't frighten easily, and are looking to get an intimate and interactive experience of the African wilderness, there is no greater way than an African walking safari. 

A walking safari is a dramatically different experience. Walking is generally conducted in small groups, typically less than 6 persons, together with a trained, armed guide and tracker. Walking in single file, you navigate your way silently through the bush with all of your instincts and attention tuned. The vulnerability of being exposed in the wilderness is exhilarating, and the exercise rewarding. A trained guide will point out many interesting features of the local fauna and flora - an experience in itself.

Walking safaris typically last less than 4 hours and are only conducted in daylight hours. You will carry a small pack of refreshments with you but return to the lodge or camp for lunch and dinners.

In recent years the range of African walking safaris has increased dramatically. Today, many of the private lodges and camps offer a walking safari as an alternate option to a daily game-drive. Should clients be looking for something a little more focused on walking, a number of multi-day tours are available focusing on walking in the wilderness.

Zambia has long been considered the initial walking safari destination, with many other African safari countries now following suit. South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania and Botswana now also offer some excellent walking safaris.
