The Serengeti on Foot (9 days)

There's no better way to get close to nature and feel alive than on foot, and no better place to walk than the remarkable Serengeti

This is a journey for anyone who really enjoys getting close to nature. When on foot in Africa you experience the thrill of heightened senses; you'll be surprised how well you smell, listen, see and feel when on foot in the bush. Discover Africa has three of the best walking guides in East Africa. Although this walking safari allows you to experience the northern Serengeti on foot, we also do walking safaris in Ruaha and Loita Hills to the east of the Mara.
