Walking Safari Experience in Tanzania (7 days)

Walking safaris gives you the chance to get closer to Africa's wildlife.

Tanzania National Parks have some great Wilderness Areas for walking safaris. This safari has been designed to allow for 3 days on foot, as well as some standard game viewing by vehicle and of course a visit to the Ngorongoro Crater en-route

Start your journey by exploring the Ngorongoro Crater. Within the crater rim, daily wildlife drama is played out as large herds of zebra and wildlife graze in close proximity to lion, leopard and black rhino. Outside of the crater, a similar drama continues in a more spread out manner with Masai herdsmen thrown into the mix. 

Then onto the Serengeti where you start your walking safari experience. Walk in a wilderness area of the Serengeti eco-system, with armed National Parks guides. The safari is fully backed-up, with the support vehicle going ahead and setting up camp in private areas. After a few days on foot, enjoy the remaining days in the camp with game drives allowing you to enjoy game viewing from a different perspective.

You will start your day with an early light breakfast… and start your walk before it gets too hot, and also to maximise the opportunity of seeing game when it’s a little more active, and with good photographic opportunities.  Walk for about 3-4 hours in the morning before arriving at the camp and enjoying lunch.  The afternoon will be spent relaxing at the camp, before heading off for a shorter walk in the vicinity of the camp.  Returning for sundowners and dinner/overnight.
