6 Days Tanzania Walking Safari

6 Days Tanzania Walking Safari

Overview

Walking safaris are, for many that regularly return to Africa, the ultimate way to experience the bush. While countries such as Zambia and Zimbabwe tend to steal the limelight for their walking itineraries, Tanzania does also, in fact, have some very good walking safaris and, when the troubles in Zimbabwe happened many of the top guides from there headed up to Tanzania to ply their trade and thus raised the bar as far as what you can expect.Over the last year or so the Tanzanian Parks Authorities have realised the potential of allowing walking safaris, as such, it is now possible to walk in such parks as Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara National Park and in some of the fringe concessions that border the Serengeti. With great game viewing and a high level of guiding, it may not allow for days on end of walking, but it can still add to the overall experience.Tanzania National Parks have some incredible wilderness areas for walking safaris. Experiencing a pristine area on foot with no disturbance from safari vehicles, is truly memorable and makes for some great photographic opportunities.

What to expect on your walking safari…..

Typically, you will have an early light breakfast… and start your walk before it gets too hot, and also to maximise the opportunity of seeing game when it’s a little more active, and with good photographic opportunities (ie lighting!). We aim to walk about 3-4 hours in the morning maximum, before arriving at the camp and enjoying a brunch/lunch. The afternoon will be spent relaxing at the camp, before heading off for a shorter walk in the vicinity of the camp. Return for sundowners and dinner/overnight. All your supplies, tents etc are moved forward by your camp crew, leaving you with only your water and snacks to carry in your day pack.
