Walking safari

Only on foot can you feel a part of the landscape


Walking safaris are the ultimate African experience. Only on foot can you feel a part of the landscape, walking over ancient rock formations, across dry river beds and through woodland and savannah, all accompanied by a wealth of birds and wildlife.

You haven’t been on safari in Africa unless you’ve got your walking boots on and explored the landscape on foot – leaving only footprints behind in the sand. To walk in Africa is to be part of Africa, a unique experience in an environment dominated by big game, and where man is but a passing guest.

Walking safaris allow the participant to investigate the flora and fauna of the Africa bush, follow the spoor of lion through the bush, a leopard lying in ambush or the tracks of a solitary and secretive rhino on his wanderings. Walking safaris offer unrivaled opportunities for the botanist, birder or photographer.

They can also reward with experiences that will live long in the memory. Zimbabwe offers some of the best big game viewing destinations in Africa, with Hwange and Mana Pools National Parks holding large numbers of elephant, buffalo, zebra, giraffe and many species of antelope, complimented with lion, leopard and hyaena.

Where it’s best? Zambia and Zimbabwe are renowed for their excellent trained walking safari guides. We offer multi day walking safaris but a shorter morning or afternoon walking safari excursion is also offered by many of our accommodations. Talk to us about your wishes and we include this in our travel design.
