Wildlife safaris and on-foot adventures

Walking safaris

Walking safaris

Soul nourishing

From the great plains of the Maasai Mara to the depths of the Amazon, for those seeking wildlife and a deeper connection to the natural world, nothing can quite beat a walking safari.


With an expert guide leading the way, all your senses will be engaged as you explore the bush. Outside a vehicle, you turn from spectator to participant with a far more intimate experience of the ecosystem. And few moments are as unforgettable as the rush of encountering a herd of elephant on foot.


Walking safaris can range from half-day scenic outings from a luxury lodge to multi-day expeditions hiking between remote camps. Have a look through our favourite walking trips to get inspired, then contact us to plan your on-foot adventure.
