A walking safari in Africa provides an exciting way to experience unique sights, sounds and smells. Including a walking safari in a bespoke itinerary provides an opportunity for the more active to really feel at one with the bush.
The walking itself is rarely arduous but the opportunity provided to get close to the bush is exhilarating. Safety is of course paramount and groups are escorted by an experienced guide and an armed ranger.
Private Guided Walking Safaris
Alex Hunter in Kenya enjoys leading 4-10 day walking safaris in remote off the beaten track areas of Kenya with his fully staffed mobile camp and often camel assisted. Likewise David Foot in Botswana, John Stevens in Zimbabwe and both Peter Lindstrom and Paul Oliver in Tanzania are walking safari specialists.
Camp/Lodge Walking Safaris
Many camps and lodges across Africa have walking safaris as an activity, particularly in Zambia – the birthplace of the walking safari in Africa. This is a gentle walk in the bush for a couple of hours usually in the mornings. Scheduled walking safaris of up to 7 nights duration for a maximum of 6 guests are also an option – walking between camps or using a mobile fly-camp – perfect for individuals or couples looking for an active safari and adventure.
It is unbelievably refreshing that although 30 years may have passed, nothing has changed and we are delighted to be able to introduce some bold new mobile safaris from our private guides in Botswana. Each safari can be 3/4 nights and so happily several safaris can be included on one magic itinerary.
It's good news for Kenya, the spiritual home of safaris. Over 19 million voted in the August election and, although a re-vote will take place shortly, the mood is positive. The first vote showed that there has been a shift away from the politics of the opposition party.
