on foot
Experience the bush like never before. 
Being on foot in the bush brings a new dimension to an immersive nature experience. It removes a layer from your sense of security, and suddenly you become aware of your place in the wild. It brings so much potential for a deeper connection with the natural world.  Walking safaris are about looking closely at the tracks and signs of animals, examining the details of the landscape, and blending in with the bush. Led by a professional trails guide, this is one of the most impactful safari activities in Africa.
A huge thank you to Brett for the most incredible week in the Pafuri on a primitive walking safari. A true privilege to experience the bush up close. This was our 7th safari trip with Brett and his team, thank you for always being so professional and providing us with the foundation to experience conservation up close.

Primitive Trails

These are multi-day guided walking trails through wildlife areas where you carry everything you need in your pack. It is an experience that takes you back to your hunter-gatherer roots and simplifies your needs for survival. Sleep under the stars, keep watch at night, spend a lot of time in silence in some of nature’s most pristine protected areas.

Mobile Camps

Walking trails that begin and end each day at a mobile campsite, which is set up and taken down each day by a ground crew while you head out with your guide to explore on foot. You carry a light pack and have the chance to enjoy rustic comforts at the end of each day as you arrive at a base camp.
