A walking safari offers an intimate encounter with nature that thrills, captivates and echoes past eras when man was wild and at one with his natural surroundings. Your guided walks with an experienced, armed ranger will take you on a journey through rugged, untouched terrain where wild animals rule their kingdom and roam freely. It’s a truly authentic safari experience that goes one step beyond mere observation, demanding that you remain alert and focused in a way that’s not often required in modern life. It can be nerve-wracking at times as you get up close to some of nature’s most powerful and dangerous creatures, but the reward is worth the adrenaline spikes! Southern Africa is home to the best destinations for walking safaris. South Luangwa in Zambia is considered o be the birthplace of the walking safari, while Tarangire National Park is one of the quietest parks in Tanzania and an excellent choice for a bush walk. In South Africa, we recommend Lion Sands in the Southern Sabi Sand Game Reserve and Madikwe Game Reserve in the North West. The Okavango Delta in Botswana offers the most unique walking safari as you’ll navigate the waterways and islands of the largest inland delta in the world.
