Walking Safaris

Fancy yourself as something of a David Attenborough? Us too, which is why the walking safari is a real Original Travel favourite.

A safari sage once said that if a game drive is like watching a film, a walking safari is like reading the book. You'll never feel more immersed in the life of a landscape and its resident wildlife than when out on foot in the bush, and it's an activity we think everyone should experience once in their lives. If the fear of being up close and personal with predators is putting you off, rest assured - we only work with very experienced and armed guides on Big Five walks.

A big game safari in Africa on foot has got to be one of the ultimate safari experiences. Zambia is the undisputed king of the walking safari and nowhere is it better than in the South Luangwa, one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world. All the big names of the safari world are there; lion, elephant, giraffe, the list goes on.

Nestled in the central highlands of Kenya, the vast and undulating landscape of Laikipia is prime game viewing territory and perfect for a walking safari. Twitchers in particular should take note because the birdlife in Laikipia is especially good.

They say variety is the spice of life and nowhere is this truer than in Botswana. From the beautiful grasslands of of the Kalahari, the lush floodplains of the Okavango Delta or the barren landscape of the Makgadikgadi Pans, diversity (of both scenery and wildlife) is what makes a walking safari in Botswana so very special.
