Walking is at a leisurely pace allowing time to learn more about the smaller flora and fauna of the African bush and how to identify and interpret animal tracks.
Zambia is the home of the walking safari going back to the 1960’s particularly in the South Luangwa, a reserve that still today offers fabulous opportunities to walk between rustic bush camps, or even to spend a night out at a fly camp with just a simple bedroll and mosquito net between you and the stars. Call us to incorporate the marvellous Luwi Camp into your itinerary.
As an adventurous addition to any safari, a Sleepout under the Stars is an extraordinary experience allowing you to reconnect with nature. Like the early explorers fall asleep under a canopy of a million twinkling stars. So with your own culinary team, a cosy bedroll and romantic mosquito net this will be one of life’s most memorable experiences.
Zimbabwe’s guides are second to none and relish the opportunity to share their love of the bush with you on foot. Mana Pools National Park is a top destination for its great visibility over the floodplains and the guides willingness to get you close to the wildlife.
In Botswana’s it’s even possible to walk with San Bushmen on an authentic experience that will reveal their hunting and survival skills and the culture and crafts of the San people. We highly recommend Deception Valley Lodge as the walks are a real highlight. Or even walk with expert trackers of the nomadic Himba tribe in the Kaokoland region of Namibia for a fascinating insight into their daily lives.
