Our walking safaris range from gentle trails, to full blown expeditionary hikes over days to exhilarating walks with big game
A walking safari in the African bush is a truly unbeatable
As you stroll, you really do take in all creatures great and
small, spending as much time perhaps learning about dung beetles as
watching a herd of elephants. You see, hear and smell so much more
than you ever can on game drives. Plus, there's nothing quite as
spine-tingling as being on foot, silently watching a lion or
buffalo just metres ahead of you.
Many Parks and reserves offer walking safaris, including
Zimbabwe's Mana Pools and Zambia's South Luangwa; the first place
to introduce them around 60 years ago. It's still leading the field
today, thanks to its exceptionally knowledgeable guides, diverse
wildlife and beautiful landscapes.
You don't need to be fighting fit - the terrain is usually easy
and the pace quite slow as you stop to see the flora and fauna.
Remember, though, to take plenty of water and sun protection to
cope with the heat.
Walks, always with an armed ranger, can simply be a gentle
stroll over a couple of hours, or can involve hikes between camps,
sleeping under the stars.
Alternatively, you can hike between camps, sleeping under the
stars with a fantastic "back-to-nature" feeling, as offered in
Kenya's remote Lewa Wilderness, where camels carry the kit - and
occasionally weary walkers - to camp.
