Walking Safaris

Walking Safaris

There's no better way to experience the Tanzanian wilderness than on foot. Nothing compares to the exhilaration of standing a few meters away from a herd of buffalo or venturing deep into the Tanzanian bush.
Our walking safaris give you the freedom to explore the Tanzanian wilderness like you've never done before. From the lush green forests to the dry bush lands we take you off the beaten tracks and bring you closer to nature. Accompanied by an experienced professional guide and armed ranger to ensure your utmost safety, you will get to explore remote areas inaccessible by vehicles.
Walking safaris can either be a stand-alone tour or part of a longer wildlife safari depending on your preference. We organize walking safaris in Serengeti, Tarangire and Lake Manyara National parks as well as the Ngorongoro Highlands.
