All Types


Not until you’ve followed in the footsteps of the great explorers and experienced the compelling excitement of getting out of your comfort zone that a walking safari delivers, can you really understand the true nature of our wilderness.

There is nothing quite like the thrill of feeling your heart pound in your chest as you tiptoe your way through a hidden rainforest, listening to the calls from animals echoing all around you. From a vehicle you see the world gliding past you; on foot you feel, hear and smell the world for a much more visceral experience and it is the only way to understand the intricacies of our natural world.

Walking guides will let you in on the secrets of your surroundings, from teaching you how to track a leopard by identifying spoor and listening for tell-tale alarm calls, to explaining how to soothe insect bites with the juice of a sausage tree. With every step there is something new to learn, a new bird or animal to spot and a new unforgettable experience.

For the adventurous, tracking mountain gorilla in the rainforests of Rwanda or spending time with the chimpanzee families of remote Western Tanzania is a life-changing experience. Mountain enthusiasts will enjoy waking through the snowcapped peaks of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco or the Andes in Patagonia, or for those who prefer a challenge, the dizzying heights of Mounts Kilimanjaro and Kenya await.

With so many different habitats to explore, from open plains to sandy river banks, eerie mopane forests to swampy lagoons and arid deserts, no two outings will ever be the same, but we guarantee that you will remember every one.
