8 Days Tanzania Active Walking Safari

8 Days Tanzania Active Walking Safari

Package Overview

Walking safari is the ultimate old-school way of exploring the African bush. It heightens the senses and makes you feel a certain vulnerability – it is the only time travelers are truly on the same playing field as the great Tanzania wildlife. Though, of course, you are accompanied by an expert guide who will help you safely navigate the bush. Tanzania is not a country that initially springs to mind as a walking safari destination, but there is an undiscovered gem that sits tucked in the wild Ruaha National Park in southern Tanzania which specializes in just this. Kichaka offers the most intrepid and classic walking safari experience on the continent.

Tour Highlights

Often the best safaris involve looking beyond the obvious highlights.

It’s about the exhilarating encounters that will make your heart sing.

These eight days are guaranteed to produce memories to last a lifetime, as we visit no fewer than five of the Northern Circuit’s natural highlights.
