Kruger Safari Walking Tours: Exclusive, Up Close and Personal
Guided walking tours on a Kruger safari offers exclusive up close and personal adventures with wildlife in the African bush. This incredible experience sees you track game, learn about the vulnerable ecosystems, and become knowledgeable in local history and culture.
Safaris in Africa are explored in a variety of ways and options to cater to all tastes and types of tourists. Whatever expedition you choose, be it horseback trails, open vehicle safaris, flight tours, there is no doubt that none compares with the amazing opportunity of being within feet of Africa’s great wildlife as provided by the guided foot safari. In addition, walking safaris are perfect to savour the sights and sounds of the African wilderness.
Major advantages of walking safaris include the seclusion in the bush away from crowded rest camps. These tours are educational and informative. Parts of the bush that are normally overlooked by other types of safaris are on intimate display to travellers on a walking Kruger safari. The multi-day guided walking safaris are highly recommended as they afford the ultimate experience in witnessing the world of the animal kingdom closely. Walking safaris off the beaten track brings the tourist into the world of the indigenous people and their cultures.
There are different types of walking tours, some more intense than others; although, combination walking safari tours can also be organised and are becoming increasingly popular. A great feature, if possible, is for you to consider a specialist walk. Specialist walks offer detailed information and facilitate better acquaintance with the biodiversity of the habitat.
Full-blown wilderness trails have visitors camping outdoors. Portered safaris feature vehicles carting gear and Base camp safaris use a lodge or tent-camp, from which to set off on daily adventures. Able-bodied travellers with a moderate level of physical fitness can participate in wilderness walking safari tours. At times a daily distance of up to 20km at a leisurely pace may be covered.
It is suggested that travellers opting for walking safaris come equipped with sunscreen lotion, insect repellent, good pair of walking shoes, powerful torch, camera and binoculars. Guided walking safaris are an authentic way to experience the ultimate Kruger safari experience.
