Walking Safaris

“An early morning chill, we breathe out moisture as we carefully study the imprints in sand…Walking safaris are the ultimate safari experience. Combining wilderness, sustainability, exercise, adrenalin, and quiet moments of solitude and reflection. Tracking big game on foot is an inherent instinct inside us; we all just need to unleash that instinct. Listening, hearing: An insect tip toeing on grains of sand, a kudu’s alarm bark, or the stomach-rumble of an elephant.”

Walking safaris can involve sleeping around the fire, but do not need to be basic. We typically base these safaris in the Klaserie, the Timbavati and northern Kruger but can be conducted anywhere.

Leopard with an Aardvark Kill at Walker’s River Camp

With the words “leopard” and “aardvark” in the same sentence, you know it’s got to be good. In this case, it might have been guests first time seeing an aardvark, or perhaps their first time seeing a leopard, but no one could have betted on finding a leopard feeding on an aardvark kill in a tree! Bittersweet feelings dominated this scene, as we watched nature at work in the most amazing way. This has quickly risen to the top of the safari list at Walker’s River Camp in the Timbavati.

A Walk on the Wild Side: Walking Safari in the Kruger

We rise with the birds, when the first orange segment of the sun peeps over the horizon, and dew drops shimmer on quivering spider webs. Our feet are the first on the ground, adding rubber-soled imprints to the network of heart-shaped impala tracks, and the careful tread of the leopard. Our eyes scan the bush for signs of life, while the chirping melody of the morning is sung all around us. The smell of wild sage permeates the air as khaki-clad limbs brush against its leaves, and the fresh scent of elephant dung reminds us that we are in Africa’s wild territory. This is a walking safari in the great Kruger National Park.
