There is nothing like a walking safari to set the heart racing and adrenalin pumping. You head out with your experienced ranger or guide in search of the Big 5, but really hoping you don’t get too close to them, and immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and smells of the bush.
Walking safaris are a fantastic way to learn about the little creatures, reptiles and insects as well as the myriad of plants, trees and bushes that make up the African bush. They are a time to slow down, to pay attention and get all your senses into gear.
Travel Africa can work a huge variety of walking safaris into your itinerary. These include:
- Spending a morning doing a walking safari with a national park’s ranger in Kruger National Park.
- For the more adventurous, enjoying one night or more at a lodge that specialises in walking safaris – Rhino Post is a favourite of ours and at Plains Camp they offer an exciting sleep out on their custom built platforms.
- Spending time in the magical Okavango Delta in Bostwana not only includes superb mekoro (dugout canoe) rides but also walking with your (unarmed) guide on one of the Delta’s myriad islands.
- If you really want to get off the beaten track let us tell you about the amazing Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe. On the banks of the Zambezi River this amazing National Park is the only one that lets brave tourists walk where ever they want!
