Guided Walks

Experience Africa on immersive ambles.

With our origins in Country Walkers, adventure on foot is in our DNA. We complement all of our safaris with optional guided walks, getting you out of your safari vehicle and into the incredible sights, sounds, and smells of Africa. Experience the thrill of strolling from camp to camp in Zambia; get to know Maasai warriors while ambling around their village in Tanzania; track elephants with a renowned guide in Zimbabwe.

You’ll learn tracking techniques from our exceptionally well-qualified guides and revel in the tiny details that present themselves when you’re out in nature: flowers in bloom, birds on the wing, and newborn antelope foraging in the tall grass. Depending on the destination, these active explorations may be a major focus of the trip or serve as an occasional supplement to game drives and other vehicle-based adventures.
