Walking Safari

Feel the sand beneath your feet as you explore the African bush from an entirely different perspective. Without the constant hum of an engine you will begin to notice all the sounds of the bush, from the serenading songbirds to the crackle of branches betraying elephants feeding in the distance. With our qualified walking guides, you will discover a sense of true connection with nature and you may even get the chance to view our larger game on foot. Due to availability of guides, a walking safari cannot be guaranteed if booked upon arrival. It is therefore strongly recommended to request your walk in advance.
