Walking in the Maasai Mara
Maasai Mara and Southern Kenya, Kenya
Exploring the African bush from outside a safari vehicle is a wonderful experience. Get away from the noise of the 4x4 and, accompanied by your professional safari guide, begin to pick up on the smaller details of the African bush.
If you have never experienced it before, heading out on foot can be a revolutionary experience, some visitors will not want to experience safari any other way afterwards. Walking gives you the opportunity to move quietly through the bush, to pick up on the smallest of sounds – the alarm call of baboons as a leopard shifts position, the chatter of an ox-pecker giving the warning of nearby big game. Focus on the tracks, interpret them and build the bigger picture. Learn about the trap set by an ant lion, and move quietly up to feeding elephant bulls for a totally different perspective on the largest inhabitant of the African bush!
