“From a vehicle, you see Africa.
On foot, you feel, hear and smell Africa.”
It is not until you have followed in the footsteps of the great explorers and experienced the compelling mix of excitement, fear, vulnerability, respect and awe that a walking safari delivers, that you really understand the true nature of the African wilderness. There’s nothing quite like the thrill of feeling your heart pound in your chest as you tiptoe your way through the bush, alarm calls from other animals echoing in the air…
The South Luangwa is the home of the walking safari, where it was first pioneered by Norman Carr in the 1960s. Today, we have some of the continent’s finest local guides tand we’re proud to say that nobody does it better. To stride out on your own two feet is the only way to understand the wilderness, and it’s the best zoology lesson you’ll ever have.
