Walking safaris in Ruaha
Selous and southern Tanzania, Tanzania
There's nothing quite like the exhilaration of a walking safari and Ruaha National Park is a prime spot for exploring on foot.
Set off with your expert safari guide, tracking wildlife by their footprints, watching for marks on trees and plants. Take in the minute details, such as a caterpillar crossing the path, or stop to admire a honeyguide bird as it skips through the trees. Being out on foot offers you the opportunity to quietly take in your surroundings, and see the wildlife on their terms. Warthogs won't scarper as far, impala may snort and run but then turn to look you in the eye - in every way this is different to being on a game drive.
