A walking safari is the best way to get as close as possible to the wildlife you came to Africa to see. After seeing the beautiful animals, plants and trees up close and personal you’ll have a better understanding of how the ecosystem works. Bush walks available in some areas of the national parks and outside the park boundaries. There are many different walks available, ranging from easy to strenuous.
It is an unforgettable experience and is completely safe as you are accompanied by an experienced guide and park ranger. We remember our first time seeing game up close and on foot and nothing compares to it; a true bush experience.
Being in the bush, with all the sights, sounds and smells of Africa is something you can’t fully experience from inside a vehicle. When you walk through the land like this you are in the animals’ territory. Tarangire is famous for walking safaris but we can also organize this in, Arusha National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area and in Serengeti National Park near Sayari Tented Camp.
The aim is for guests to explore the surrounding wilderness on foot, as they walk between lodges/camps, taking time to observe the small wonders, such as spiders, ant lions, and dung beetles. Along the way, a hearty al fresco brunch will be served under a shady tree, followed by a short siesta in a hammock. We offer several Tanzania Walking Safari packages for adventure travelers that can also be altered to fit with any itinerary.
There is no doubt that, when you talk to most people, the subject of safari occurs most often when thinking about a honeymoon. Due to the increased costs involved, as well as the time that it takes to fly around Tanzania, it makes sense that almost 60% of visitors that come are on a Tanzania Special interest. With this in mind, and given our experience with Tanzania honeymoons, wildbeest Migration Safari, Balloon Safari, bird-watching even walking Safari, we have put together a bit of a check list as well as a few thoughts as to where it is best to take into consideration.
Within the space of several hours, it’s possible to go from lazing on idyllic beaches to exploring moss-covered ruins of ancient Swahili city-states; from climbing mist-covered slopes in the Southern Highlands to trekking through the barren landscapes around Ol Doinyo Lengai, guided by a spear-carrying Maasai warrior. Coupled with a memorable safari, what can be more romantic than a stay on an Indian Ocean island with warm tropical waters and white palm-lined beaches?
