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.

People of the Wilderness: Bruce Lawson, Wilderness Trails Expert and South African Safari Legend

Bruce Lawson has defined the meaning and value of true wilderness for the many, many people who have had the opportunity to walk with him, be guided by him, and learn from him in the bush. His enthusiasm for the natural world, and to totally submerge himself and others in it, is not a passion; it is a belief. Brett met Bruce in 2005 when he was trained under Bruce and mentored by him, forming a steadfast relationship that has led to countless unforgettable experiences on safari. Bruce Lawson has a long list of accolades and achievements, including 17000 hours (and counting) spent on trail, walking 12 000 km, unassisted, from Cape to Cairo, and all after being told by doctors he would never walk again after a car accident in early childhood.

4-Night Wilderness Walking Trails in Kruger

Brett recently spoke to Tamara on Classic FM’s Classic Lifestyle Show in Hoedspruit, covering all bases when it comes to primitive walking trails in the Kruger. Brett has specialised in walking safaris throughout his 14-year career, and has immense experience and qualifications in the field. Plus – it’s truly the rawest and most rewarding form of safari, not to mention the most cost effective. Take a look at the 2018 details for our 4-night walking trails in Pafuri and Timbavati where dome tents and campfires dominate, and cell phones and electricity fade into the distance. This one is a favourite among South Africans and safari veterans looking for a deeper, more meaningful nature experience.

South Luangwa National Park

South Luangwa National Park is perhaps Zambia’s most well-known and popular safari destination. It is located in the east of the country in the Luangwa River valley and supports very large herds of Cape buffalo, elephants, leopard, lion, and African wild dog. It is famous for walking safaris, pioneered by Norman Carr in the 1950s, and it is maintained that this is one of the most exhilarating and pristine walking safari experiences in Africa. Predator sightings are high, due to the mass congregations of wildlife along the Luangwa River, creating unbeatable and unforgettable safari sightings.

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.
