- Wilderness Trails -
Walk an African wilderness trail with the chance of encountering some of the largest and most charismatic to the smallest and most delicate creatures of the Greater Kruger Lowveld. Being part of a small walking trail group of a maximum of four guests, one can be subtle and sensitive enough to have remarkable encounters with the smallest elephant shrew to the most majestic African elephant.
Walk specific trails with certain wildlife in mind.
For example, in the cooler temperatures of June and July, walk pangolin trails, tracking this illusive and mysterious creature when its too cold for them to operate in the darkest hours. Enjoy walking in the bounty of summer with it's abundance of new life and when the air is filled with copious colourful butterflies. And be entranced by the myriad of bird calls in the morning, beckoning your journey through the wild.
Feel the thrill of seeing from a wild animals perspective, through tracking an Elephant, a Lion, a Buffalo or other wild game along it's path on foot. This is juxtaposed by the peace and tranquility of the breath-taking Lowveld.
For the bird enthusiasts, enjoy walking bird trails and have the option of giving back with fun citizen science bird surveys.
- Driving Safaris -
Sit back on one of our driving safaris, a great way to get closer to some of the larger game and fantastic for photographic opportunities. Our driving safaris will also often take you to different, selected locations for a walking trail or to a perfect sun-downer spot.
