Walking safari in Etosha

Walk along paths of untamed beauty at Etosha National Park

The essence of the Walking safari

Experience Namibia as the first explorers did, on foot and in awe of its untouched nature and allure. Walks through the Etosha National Park are both awe-inspiring and humbling, as you tread along the very paths animals roam free on and observe their intimate lives from a careful distance. It is the perfect setting in which to appreciate the natural environment. The slow pace of the walk and the interpretive skills of the armed guides open your eyes to a new and fascinating world. The unique perspective garnered during a walk awakens a sense of fulfilment and sensory appreciation. The 2½ hour walk through the park leaves you feeling connected and at one with the earth, offering the perfect setting in which to relax, unwind and connect with nature.

The walking safari begins with an in-depth safety briefing that outlines how participants should act and conduct themselves when encountering wildlife. Walks are led by experienced and trained guides who tailor the excursions to suit the preferences of every guest, whether it’s to view a certain animal or plant species, to learn about the mannerisms of different wildlife species and their habitats or simply to enjoy the vast expanse of bush and the panoramic surroundings. Walkers will be instructed on the identification of various tracks, as well as on the smaller wildlife and plants that live in the park and that are often missed during a game drive. Morning walks that head out at the crack of dawn offer great photographic opportunities, with soft, earthy light and encounters with early morning wildlife. They end with a sumptuous breakfast, enjoyed in the outdoors, in full view of the breath-taking landscape and beneath the warm African sun.
