For most people the word safari is synonymous with a game drive in a safari vehicle inside the game parks. Although this is a good way of experiencing the beauty of the game parks and wildlife, there’s another enriching and exciting way if you are looking for an authentic and wild experience. This is going on a walking safari.
A walking safari is an adventurous experience where you will embark on slow paced, guided walks in game parks with the goal of coming up to close with wildlife and nature. On a normal game drive, there a lot of things you miss by being enclosed inside the safari vehicle. Walking safaris on the other hand allow you to witness the small details often overlooked on game drives such as big game footprints, small animals, plants and insects.
Our walking safaris are led by professional and experienced guides and often happens in areas with rich wildlife. You are guaranteed of spotting more wildlife, at a safe distance of course. Walking safaris allow to have an authentic outlook of wildlife and bush rather than only observing it. With the assistance of the guide, you’ll be free to stop and inspect animal tracks. Your guide will show you interesting insets and discuss about unique plants.
Some of the animals you’ll encounter on a walking safari include large ones such as lions, elephants, giraffes, rhinos, buffalos and zebras. Coming face to face with an elephant is a truly humbling and rewarding experience.
On average, a walking safari will last for 2 hours. Some walking safaris might include a bit of hiking but it depends on your fitness and level of adventure you are seeking to have. Your guide will choose the best suited terrain for you to enjoy and maximize your walking safari experience.
