walking safari within the Greater Kruger National Park is a
experience, there is absolutely no question of this! To walk in the bush with South Africa's wildlife; sharing

Experience a walking safari - It's the real thing
Walking in the wild with
animals that are potentially dangerous, you must obey your rangers & trackers instructions at all times.
A reasonable level of fitness will be
required for this safari as you will be walking in the region of 4 hours per day. Whilst the terrain is not too demanding and relatively flat, the amount of time spent walking is quite significant.
Unfortunately, children under 16 years are
not permitted on this safari.
We suggest you bring light
neutral colour clothing on safari - no white clothes. The night
game drive can be chilly even in the summer months so we
recommend you bring a light warm jacket. We also recommend you
bring insect repellent, sun block, sun glasses, a hat or cap,
broken-in walking shoes, torch/flashlight, 7x50 binoculars,
camera and plenty of film.
