Walking Safari

Walking Safari

Experience Tanzania in a unique and thrilling way with a walking safari, which many safari aficionados believe is the ultimate method to truly connect with the African wilderness. Offering a different perspective than traditional vehicle-bound safaris, walking safaris give you the chance to intuitively tune into the ecosystem, and appreciate the minor details that often go unnoticed.

Walking Safaris Across Tanzania's National Parks

  • Selous Game Reserve: One of the primary areas for walking safaris in Tanzania is the Selous Game Reserve. Its status as a reserve, rather than a national park, allows slightly different regulations. Owing to its diverse environments and topographies, it lends an intriguing walk that can keep you engrossed for up to a week.
  • Ruaha National Park: Located west of the Selous Game Reserve, Ruaha National Park offers a contrasting environment with its open grasslands and baobab forests. Though it doesn’t offer the same variety of climates as Selous, its exceptional beauty and high standard of guiding with camps like Mwagusi make for a rewarding walking safari experience.
  • The Northern Safari Parks: Recently, Tanzanian Parks authorities have recognized the potential in walking safaris in parks such as Tarangire National Park and Lake Manyara National Park, as well as some fringe concessions bordering the Serengeti. While such walks might not last for days, they provide excellent game viewing and an added dimension to your safari experience.

The best time for walking safaris in Tanzania is during the dry season, typically from June to October. Wildlife is easier to spot due to lower vegetation and animals clustering around water sources.

Embarking on a walking safari in Tanzania provides an opportunity to feel, hear, and smell the African wilderness, making for an incredibly raw and intimate safari experience. Whether you're a seasoned safari-goer or a first-timer, a walking safari is sure to provide a thrilling and immersive experience.
