Safari bush walks can certainly give you an adrenaline rush because you’re stepping – quite literally – into the wilderness many animals call home. Safari by game vehicles are amazing but the smaller details and marvels are often missed. This is why a walking safari is a spectacular way to get closer and experience the bush like never before.
Rangers get to know the bush so intimately, they can tell you about almost everything – from flora and birdlife to large animals to small. And even the tiniest tell-tale signs – you can trust them. Before embarking on your adventure, your rangers will explain the rules of safari bush walks. These are meant to keep you safe and maximise your chances of encountering even the shiest animal.
These rules usually include:
Your ranger will give you many opportunities to learn the secrets of the African bush and show you the different plants, birds, animals and insects on the walk. You will be able to smell, feel, sometimes taste, hear and see so many things – it’s truly an amazing experience.
You will get to learn to identify the tracks of different animals, and even their scat! Grow your knowledge on medicinal plants and the ones to avoid. As you journey through the bush with your ranger and your walking team, marvel at the intrinsic connections that make up the ecosystem. Everything is connected and every living creature has a role to play – even the tiniest ant. This realisation and being able to see it with your own eyes is such a rewarding part of safari bush walks.
Remember, every safari experience is created differently. This means you can go on as many safaris as you’d like and still encounter something new. You can find out more about a typical day on safari here.
