Walking Safaris in Tanzania

Safari Enquiry

Who needs the regular safaris that we have become accustomed to when you can have a walking safari? Walking safaris have become a massive hit recently, and this is purely because of the opportunity that tourists have to come closer to the wild and interact more with the animals. For people who choose this option, it is set to become an unforgettable and exhilarating experience walking among big game. There are few destinations which specialize in walking safaris and we will show you where you can get the best out of walking safaris.

Walking safaris are a great way to meet the magic of the bush

Encountering animals by stepping into their world awakens your senses and the bush somehow feels even more alive and engaging. Following in the tracks of mighty herds, a walking safari is indeed a soulful wildlife encounter.

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.

Seeing beautiful sights up close

The scenery surrounding this active volcano mountain in Tanzania is breathtaking. Visitors can take a walk from the neighboring campsites and take a walk to the nearby Lake Natron and the expansive Rift Valley. The local community, the Maasai, can also be found in this region grazing their cattle. There are many tour guide companies in this area which organize safari walk expeditions.

Leopards are elusive and can be more easily spotted on foot, with a guide

If dense forests full of chimpanzees and waterfalls are your idea of a safari walk, the Mahale Mountains in Tanzania is a good bet. This has the largest concentration of chimps in the world which makes the safari even more interesting. It is advisable to visit the Mahale Mountains during the dry season since the times the track can be impassable. There are generous, thatched-style hotels nearby for accommodation.
