When exploring and experiencing Africa’s wilderness areas, there is no better way to get closer to nature than by foot.
Walking safaris are rather original and remain the one of the purist forms of safaris. Away from the comforts of a vehicle, your senses suddenly get awakened as the life within the bush becomes more real.
Meeting wildlife on their grounds is far more rewarding than just watching.
Walking safaris, usually last for up to 4 hours. Depending on the country, there could even be one safari guide or even two. Certainly walking safaris may encounter with dangerous wildlife such as the big five, yet with the trained guide, you will be safe.
Your safari guide will usually lead the way and identify tracks, they will spot insects, speak about the surrounding plant life and ecosystems. They will also identify and track, larger animals. This is truly a great way to appreciate the smaller wildlife, which often cannot be seen within a safari vehicle.
Most of the African countries offer walking safaris, however the forms differ of cause between countries and reserves.
