Walking safaris

You do not know a place until you’ve walked it. Walking safaris are, for many that regularly return to Africa, the ultimate way to experience the bush. Countries such as Zambia and Zimbabwe tend to steal the limelight for their walking safari itineraries. That said, those travelling too East Africa are showing more interest in walking safaris, and all for the right reasons.

One might argue that the ultimate walking safari in East Africa is gorilla trekking in the Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda. Hiking through this incredible forest in search of a family of endangered mountain gorillas is a walking safari like no other, and as the gorillas have become so used to the presence of humans and the guides are experienced in tracking them, the ultimate goal of seeing the primates is almost always achieved on a daily basis.
