When you carry yourself on your own two feet, you have time to observe and take stock of what’s around you. That is the simple premise of a walking safari: the pace is sedate, and you can notice everything from sprinklings of pollen to tracking animals by their dung, the colour of butterflies and the way that certain birds craft their nest. A good walking guide will not only bring your attention to these minute details, but explain them in such a way that you recognise their importance in the wider ecosystem of the park.
We encourage you to see the places you visit in depth.
In Zambia, we can arrange trips up to a week in length in the remarkable Luangwa Valley, where you can walk from camp to camp, sleeping out in between in the exclusive company of your guides, wildlife and a million stars in the African night sky. You will be in the very heart of the bush, tracking, learning bushcraft, and feeling at one with nature. The camps you stay in will be intimate affairs, often only accommodating half a dozen gusts and blending into the landscape with their natural reed and thatch roofs.
