Ruaha Walking Safari I Tanzania Walking Safari
If you’re looking for a traditional walking safari experience, supported by a mobile camp, then in our opinion few of the alternatives come close to walking in Ruaha National Park.
Breathtaking and varied scenery combines with massive herds of elephant and buffalo, endless prides of lion, antelope of every race, crede and colour, and mercifully few tourists. Visitor numbers are low anyway in Ruaha, but in the eastern end of the park where these walks take place, they are non-existent.
Based at a Kichaka, a small traditional safari camp, well away from the busier areas of the park, you’ll strike out on walks led by an armed guide with many years of experience on foot in Ruaha. Walks are for anything from one night to ten nights for those going for total immersion.
Most people opt for two to three nights out walking supported by Kichaka’s fly-camp, but you could easily spend a further three or more nights at the base camp quietly soaking up the atmosphere with a combination of morning or evening walks and game drives.
Ruaha National Park Walking Safari
Complementing the abundant wild game, there’s a particular softness to Ruaha especially in the early season.
The sepia haze of grass seeds in June and July contrasts with delicate white-blond grasses backlit against the morning sun, the strong orange-red laterite soil and the deep blues of the distant hills and sky.
Feel, hear and smell Tanzania:
Imagine, you walk on the same path as the elephants and other wildlife, you feel the wind through you hair, hear a lion roar in the distance and smell the bush and wildlife. Your senses awaken, as you become part of your environment and the wilderness becomes more real.
Wildlife up close and personal:
While animals will generally ignore you in a vehicle, they see you as another type of animal when you are on foot. Getting up close and personal with wildlife is definitely a rush of excitement. Walking is also a great way to appreciate the smaller wildlife, which can’t be so easily seen from a vehicle.
Access remote areas on foot:
On foot you can walk into remote areas and reach places that a safari car can’t. Once on foot, you are not constrained by roads and can go almost anywhere you like. Away from the crowds, off the beaten track. It offers you a freedom incomparable to any game drive safari.
