WALKING SAFARI

African safaris are changing. As surely as the camera has replaced the hunting rifle, the growing popularity of guided walking safaris has revolutionised traditional game viewing activities. Away from the confines of a vehicle, travellers are now venturing into big game country on foot for anything from an hour's stroll to several days, spending starlit nights at remote lodges or tented camps.

An African walking safari is one of life's most unforgettable adventures. Imagine birdsong-filled days spent following animal tracks, shadowing a foraging baboon troop or settling down in the shade to watch Buffalo gather at a waterhole. Armed rangers and professional guides ensure your safety and comfort, and you sit down to a fire-cooked meal and slip into bed between crisp sheets every night.

Prepare yourself for a different kind of safari experience. Set in some of the best game reserves in East and Southern Africa, there are always plenty of animals to see on a Walking Safari.

 TRAVEL TIPS

  • Take some entertainment for down time in safari camps – smartphone games, iPad apps, books, colouring stuff, playing cards, etc.
  • Pack a small rucksack for each child to use as a day pack, great for taking in vehicles or planes.
  • Be adventurous, children are more robust than you think and families often really enjoy simple fly camping and walking.
  • Don’t rush – we advise at least three nights per safari camp – and don’t try to do too much on one family holiday.
