One unique experience available is a walking
safari in the game reserve. This is where
you venture into the bush with your safari
leader and armed guard to explore the
on foot. You will stay overnight in a
bush camp and will truly enjoy the experience
this exciting form of game viewing.
HERE ARE SOME FREQUENTLY ASKED
HOW FAR DO YOU WALK IN A DAY?
The Trail Leader suits the distance to
his walkers and their needs. Usually the
group sets out at dawn and walks for 1.5
hours before having a break for tea, followed
by a further 1.5 hours back to camp. This
would be approximately 6 miles. In the
afternoon a further 4 miles. Walks are
not forced marches! If you prefer to stay
in camp, this is quite acceptable.
DO YOU SLEEP ON THE GROUND?
No. There are thatched huts in each camp,
with steel beds, mattresses, linen and
mosquito nets. Lighting is by paraffin
SO WE CARRY OUR LUGGAGE OURSELVES?
No. Your heavy luggage is taken to your
camp in advance by vehicle or porter.
WILL I GET BETTER PICTURES WALKING
THAN FROM A VEHICLE? No. On foot
you will have to stalk animals to get
close. You can get much closer in a vehicle.
However, some shots you get on walks could
never be obtained from a vehicle.
AREN’T WALKING SAFARIS DANGEROUS?
Of course there is some element of danger;
this is what makes them special. Walks
have been done for many years, pioneered
by Norman Carr. Your guides are good at
avoiding dangerous situations.
WHAT IS THE AGE LIMIT?
The minimum age is 12 years old.
WHAT SHOULD ONE WEAR?
Footwear should be light and comfortable,
with good grip soles. Running shoes are
ideal. Clothing should be neutral, never
white; cotton is good. In the early mornings
and evenings a jacket, trousers to protect
legs and ankles from insects, and a hat
CAN WE INFLUENCE THE NATURE OF
OUR WALK? Certainly. Your Trail
Leader will design the walk around your
interests. If you want to spend more time
sitting and watching, and that is the
consensus of the group, that is the way
it will be. Walks are flexible.
