Exploring the bush on foot is the perfect way to discover all the things, big and small, that make remote, pristine wilderness areas so special.
For those wanting a walking safari experience, Great Plains Conservation’s Selinda Adventure Trail in Botswana and Sapi Springs and Sapi Explorers Camps in Zimbabwe are perfect. The Selinda Adventure Trail replicates safari experiences of old, charting a 3-night/4-day course, walking and canoeing along the Selinda Spillway and into the remote woodlands of the 130,000 hectare Selinda Reserve.
The 120,000 hectare Sapi Reserve, home Sapi Springs and Sapi Explorers Camps, forms part of a 1.6 million acre Unesco World Heritage site and is Africa’s dream walking safari destination. Selinda Explorers Camp and ol Donyo Lodge are great options as well.
From Selinda Explorers Camp you can bushwalk and canoe daily (water levels permitting) while from ol Donyo Lodge you can hike through Hemingway’s ‘green hills of Africa’ or explore the plains at the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro on a walk, by bike or from the back of a horse. For those wanting to get out on foot for a morning or an afternoon, shorter bushwalks are available from most of our properties (walking activities may have a higher age limit).
