Walking Safaris

Walking Safaris-Safari Vacations Africa

Discover Africa’s Savannah & wilderness destinations trips on foot by walking safaris and witness Africa’s beauty. Walking safaris in Africa are completely different to game drives, group walking and understanding the surrounding. The traditional African safari is fun, but a guided walking safari is more rewarding and intense while seeing bird song filled days.

Leave the confines of a safari vehicle and venture into a big game country trails on foot for hours or days, spending nights under the skies at remote lodges and camps. A guided walking safari holiday gives you the experience of traveling under your own power opening up an opportunity to connect more meaningfully with East Africa’s natural wonders. Set in the unusual backcountry trails, villages, and top game reserves in East Africa guided walking safari trips offer plenty of animals to see. Still, the trip’s emphasis is on nature’s smaller details – a whispering water stream, colorful flowers, golden sunset, and unusual species sighting.

Guided walking safaris on-foot trekking experiences like mountain climbing,trekking the mountain gorillas in Uganda and Rwanda’s misty forest jungles, a must-do experience tracking chimpanzee in Uganda’s Kibale Forest. All our walking safari trips are privately tailor-made to every traveler’s preferences.

Walking safaris in Tanzania and Kenya game is unpredictable and is not always guaranteed. One of the main attractions of a walking safari is learning about the environment you are walking through and tracing the small tracks, footprints and finer details of animals. Whilst some national parks are restricted to game drives only, there are a few destinations we would specifically recommend for walking safaris in East Africa. They include the Laikipia Plateau, Amboseli and the Greater Mara Conservancies in Kenya; and the Selous Game Reserve, Tarangire National Park, and the Ngorongoro Highlands in Tanzania.
