WALKING SAFARI

Walking safaris are perhaps the ultimate bush adventure as you get up close and personal with Africa’s wildlife; from gentle giraffes to rhinos, elephants or lions.

Outbound in Africa walking safaris literally take you places you can’t imagine as you push your own personal boundaries. You’ll walk during the cooler parts of the day and sleep out under the stars, with just a small dome tent between you and the wild. You’ll discover the liberating thrill of an outdoor shower, learn about the art of tracking and experience delicious, home-style meals around a blazing campfire and under a canopy of stars.

Walking safaris are also a great way to see the smaller bush creatures and become part of your surroundings that might be over looked when on a vehicle, such as following up and identifying spoor, chatting about the insects, medicinal uses of the plants in the local area, chatting about the ecosystem and sometimes track and encounter large game.

PRIVATE GUIDED SAFARI
Either on foot or in an open safari vehicle, this person will introduce you to all the secrets of the wild, sharing information and experiences that are as rare as they are satisfying, seen by nobody expect you…

Starting out as host and a tour leader, by the end of the trip, your private safari guide will also be your friend. He or she will coordinate your entire experience, piecing it together with insights into conservation, culture, history and politics as you explore any number of destinations.

As well as ensuring your travels are stress free, your private guide can also tailor your experience to suit specific interests like photography or birding. He will meet you on arrival at the airport; accompany you throughout your trip, navigating roads, border posts and paperwork along the way, before waving you good-bye at the other end.
