Walking safaris were the original safari in Africa. You might not get as close to the big game as you would from a vehicle but there is nothing more exciting than viewing elephants, buffalo, rhino or big cats than when you're on foot.
Stalking the plains game is great fun as they are masters of detecting predators (of which we are considered one) but the elegance of a running giraffe or herd of zebras at ground level gives a different perspective to an African safari. You'll also learn how to track animals and about the smaller members of the animal kingdom, the insects and the trees and plants which you often whizz by in your vehicle.
For those looking for something more challenging, there are plenty of mountains to climb throughout Africa. The highest peaks are Mt Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest freestanding mountain, which at 5,895m (19,340ft), is one of the highest mountains in the world that can be climbed without technical equipment. Other peaks to conquer are Kenya’s Mt Kenya and Malawi’s Mt Mulanje or in Morocco, Mt Toubkal is an easy summer climb but more technical in the winter.
From gentle walks to more challenging treks, you can follow ancient game trails through some of the most unspoiled and spectacular landscapes in Africa. You will be accompanied by a team of experienced local guides, to show you the wonders these trails have to offer and take care of you, the camps, meals, equipment, and supplies.
