The essence of the experience
For those looking for an active thrill beyond the excitement of Big Five sightings on a game drive vehicle, a walking safari offers an opportunity to connect with the African bush, interacting with all its inhabitants, from largest to smallest. Embark on an adventure where your feet tread in the tracks of zebra and buffalo, your nostrils fill with the scent of crushed wild grasses and you push through the brush and all six senses re-awake as Africa touches you and you touch Africa.
At one with nature, experience a range of natural wonders in the company of your experienced professional guide. Learn how to track, seeing how close you can come to smaller game like impala or nyala antelope without them being aware of your presence. Crouch behind a bush to catch a glimpse of a passing elephant or rhino. Smell and taste wild herbs, learning their traditional uses, and explore the smaller marvels of the bush, from the magnificent tapestry of a spider’s web to the microscopic world of the dung beetle. Watch a multitude of colourful birds as they flit from branch to branch, trilling out their sweet songs. Engage all your senses as you discover an unexpected world where each sound and scent and every bent blade of grass have a meaning.
Each bush walk is accompanied by an expertly trained and qualified guide, who follows strict protocols to ensure your safety and comfort. Your guide will point out the finer details of your environment, from tiny insects to interesting trees and shrubs, as well as animal tracks and dung. Together you will explore the beautiful bush savannah or browse the thickets of the Sand River. Bush walks do not attempt to come close to big game and are safe for guests from the age of sixteen and older.
