Bush Walking in South Africa and Zambia

South Africa

Feel Africa underfoot on a guided bush walk with a highly trained and armed game ranger in a National Park. The experience offers an intimate encounter with nature and wildlife, and medicinal and other plants are identified en route. Rangers also teach walkers to track wildlife in the traditional way, using animal footprints and scat. Expert trackers are able to tell the gender of many animals just from their footprints. Dangerous animals are generally avoided on walks, but many species can be viewed from a safe distance at ground level. When walking in a National Park then you would generally do this activity in lieu of your vehicle game drive during your safari. Not all safari lodges offer bush walking so it is important to inquire in advance.


If you are up to” Walk on the Wild Side” you might even choose a mobile walking safari in Zambia. You will walk for five days covering approximately 6 miles a day, following the Mupamadzi River. This clear river is a major tributary of the Luangwa. The area is rRPS_2012-09-144eemote and wild, the terrain and habitats varied and the game shy and unused to man. From ants to buffalo, a bird’s nest to tracking a lion, you will learn the many facets of the bush. The fully serviced mobile camp is extremely comfortable and well-equipped with walk-in tents and full bedding. The shower is under a tree and the toilet is a bush loo with a wooden throne. Meals of a high standard are served under the open sky. This is not only one of the best wilderness experiences in the South Luangwa but sure to be one of the best ones in your lifetime.
