At African Safari Vacations we categorize walking safaris into four types:-

 

Walking Safaris in Africa - www.epicafricansafaris.com
 
 
 
 
Day Walks from a Safari Lodge

A 2 - 3 hour day walk under the guidance of a safari guide in a big game area with the purpose of viewing game, birds, plants and other signs one can pick up in the bush.

These are conducted by nearly all safari lodges and camps in Southern Africa, often as a filler between game drives, or as a main activity in the morning of afternoon. These walks are very much an optional activity where the main safari activities are in fact game drives.

Walking Safaris from Permanent Safari Camp

A 2 - 4 day walking safari conducted from a permanent safari camp or lodge. A safari guide would take guests out into the bush for 3 - 4 hour game walks each morning and afternoon, but always returning to the camp or lodge.

These are popular in places like the Kruger Park. The emphasis is on a holistic interpretation of the bush including tracks, sights, sounds, smells, birds, insects etc…Over the few days guests become immersed in the day cycles of the wilderness, and can enjoy the comfort of a soft bed and a proper bathing facilities.

Mobile or Classic Walking Safaris

A 2 - 4 day mobile walking safari in which guests walk, under the guidance of a safari guide from camp to camp. These camps can take the form of temporary tented camps set up ahead of guests by a support team, or more permanent camps that remain in place.

These are considered to classic walking safari, and carry a certain romantic appeal of a past era, as this is very much how the explorers and hunters of the past used to travel or “safari”.  This type of walking safari feels more like a journey as guests are guided through varying habitats and landscapes and always sleep in a different setting.

Primitive Walking Safaris

A 2 - 4 day primitive walking safari. These walking safaris are the most “back to basics” walking safari. Guests carry their own backpacks containing their food, tents, water & clothes, and under the guidance of a safari guide explore a wilderness area with big game. There are no permanent camp sites and no toilet facilities.

The trailists would set up camp at a different location each night, and experience the diverseness of wildlife and immense beauty that these wilderness areas offer. A true appreciation of modern luxuries such as tap water, electricity, houses is instilled and although this type of walking safari is considered “roughing it”, it offers richest African wilderness experience.
