These walking safaris in Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park are the best way to experience the vast wilderness areas in the park – beyond the game drive roads and routes.
This is not the brief mid-morning stroll after your game drive, offered by many traditional safari lodges. Rather, the goal is to cover a good amount of ground, and to explore the vastness beyond the usual tourist haunts. And so, you should be prepared to spend most of each morning walking, and possibly part of each afternoon. The pace is slow, and the terrain easy, but you should be walking fit. Have no fear, this is not a route march, and every excuse to stop is taken – from bird-watching to wondering at a spider packing up her dew-drenched web after a night of hunting. And watching lions hunt buffaloes.
You will carry your own water and personal items for each walk, but of course your kit bag and heavier items are left in camp, to be transported to the next camp location. Blisters are the norm, and you will get hot and uncomfortable at times.
There is a game-drive vehicle based at camp, and so game drives are possible during walking safaris – but the true essence of walking safaris is to, well, walk.
For a really good idea about this iconic walking safari, read our CEO’s travel diary about his Serengeti adventure.
Indeed, Serengeti walking safaris are for those who want more than the traditional lodge and game drive arrangement. That said, a combo of the two is just perfect. After this amazing soul-food walking safari, you could head off to enjoy a more traditional lodge-based safari, also in the Serengeti – we will arrange that for you as well.
