Walking safari in Botswana

Walking safaris in Botswana are geared towards the adventurous travellers looking to augment their safari experience by immersing themselves in nature.

If you consider yourself adventurous, and would like to appreciate some of Botswana’s most pristine places on foot, then consider a walking holiday in this beautiful Southern African nation.

Get up close and personal with big and small wildlife

Botswana is mostly flat, which means the walking need not be very taxing, but an adventurous mind is key to making the most of the experience.

Walking safaris means that there is a possibility to meet some of the larger wildlife, in their natural habitat, and see Botswana through a different lens.

Walking is guided by an experienced guide and done in a slow, secure manner, to avoid potentially dangerous situations.
