Walk amongst the Wild
That’s right, we think this year is about immersive experiences that stimulate all the senses. To do that, we recommend you get out on foot with a great Africa walking safari guide who knows everything about anything large and small. You can smell the grasses, feel the heat, touch the sand and even taste a thing or two. So where should you experience a walking holiday in Africa?
We have two all time favourites, in Southern Africa it has to be Zambia’s South Luangwa. There are outstanding camps and lodges with some of the very best guides and the wildlife is phenomenal. We work really closely with the best in the business from Norman Carr Safaris to owner run camps like Tafika and Kafunta to bring you the very best walking safari holidays. It’s always great to go somewhere that offers a diversity of landscapes thus wildlife and of course activities. So you can also game drive from these places too which is always essential in our books.
In East Africa, we love walking safaris in Kenya’s Masai Mara safari land! Now here is where the excitement awaits because you’ll experience wilderness, wildlife not to mention Maasai culture first hand through the stories of your guide. We work with owner run Kicheche and this year they have taken stock of last year’s feedback and fine tuned an itinerary that links two of their luxury tented camps by means of two half day walks with an overnight authentic private fly camp in between… that means you camp out under the stars in the Masai Mara. Could that be you? YES!
The Masai Mara isn’t known for walking because the national park has restrictions. But we operate in community conservancies. It’s not busy because there are restrictions on numbers so there is no impact on the environment. Get out for six days in the Naboisho and Olare Motorogi Conservancies with a silver standard guide… doesn’t get much better than that. It’s private safari only and again split between game drives and walking so you get the best of both Kenya safari holiday worlds.
So don’t just talk the talk… get to Africa for a walking safari and walk the walk. You won’t regret it!
