For the most authentic safari experience, exploring the African wilds on foot is as good as it gets. Perfect for anyone looking for a unique perspective on safari and for the adventurous at heart, walking safaris is the best way to feel a part of the surrounding eco-system and grow closer to nature.
Transfrontiers Walking Safaris have over 20 years of experience leading excursions into the African wilds and afford guests the chance to gain a deeper insight into the lives of some of the continent's most famous inhabitants. Discover paths beat into the bushveld by animals and camp out under a ceiling of stars, surrounded by the sounds of the wild. The minimum age for a walking safari is 16 and a good level of fitness is recommended, with some walks lasting up to 6 hours through tough terrain.
The safaris run every Mon-Fri (5 day / 4 night) and every Fri-Mon (4 day / 3 night), with a maximum of 8 guests allowed on each trail. The walk-in tents sit under thatch and feature twin beds and en-suite bathrooms, which include flush toilets and hot/ cold showers. There are also air conditioned chalets available. Enjoy traditional cuisine cooked over the open fire and learn as much as possible from the experienced trail rangers who accompany guests, along with a chef and camp staff.
