Take part in an African walking safari

There is no better way to truly experience the culture, wildlife and the landscape than by getting down and amongst it and partaking in a walking safari. For many people the walking safari is the ultimate tour option that enables you to weave seamlessly into the thread of the landscape and the movements of its wildlife and indigenous peoples.

Firstly, don’t be frightened off if you think that an African walking safari means an exhausting trek of endless miles across the plains. This tour can be planned to suit your individual needs and your fitness level. You can even look to incorporate a trek amongst a mix of other activities such as a night game drive, a cultural visit or with a horse riding safari. The options are endless and we can help you to plan your dream tour depending on your wishes.

Walking safaris are available in most areas of Tanzania. You may be interested in visiting the Ngorogoro Conservation Area, Mt Oldongo Lengai, Selous Game Reserve, or National Parks such as the Serengeti, Ruaha, Katavi, Mahale, Arusha or Tarangire.

If a cultural walking safari is of interest you may choose to visit the Ngorongoro Highlands. Here you can experience a cultural walk where there are many varied routes around the hills and forests of Lemagrut, Olmoti and Empakaai where the flower, birdlife and forest animals are abundant. Here you will come into contact with the Masaai and their cattle and donkeys. You will be captivated by the Masaai’s knowledge of nature and their unique link to this beautiful land.

When you visit Africa, walking safaris are a great way to ensure you get up close and personal with nature, or of walking with a Masaai guide along the deeply spiritual trails their predecessors have trodden for hundreds and hundreds of years is an experience that will surely become the highlight of your visit to this magnificent country.
