Walking Safaris

Walking safaris offer the opportunity to step outside of man's technological cocoon, and experience the African wilderness as the very first humans did. One changes from being a passive observer on a vehicle to an active participant in the ecosystem, alert and vulnerable to a multitude of potentially lethal creatures that live and die by the "law of the jungle".

Walking safaris are only conducted by the most qualified and experienced guides, who are always armed with large caliber rifles. The focus of walking safaris is not dangerous game - in fact guides typically make a concerted effort to avoid any exposure to dangerous animals. Instead, walking safaris present the perfect opportunity to focus on smaller aspects of the ecosystem that are typically overlooked when searching for "big game" on safari game drive - your guide will explain the critical role of termites in sustaining the African bush, they will point out flowers and birds, and explain the medicinal and cultural significance of various tree and plant species. While specialized walking-only safaris do exist, most safari camps and lodges offer walking as an important supplement to safari game drives. Walking safaris are typically only permitted on private land outside National Parks.
