ACTIVE. ADVENTUROUS. FUN
If you’re up for an active, adventurous holiday to a wilderness destination unspoiled by mass tourism, then you have come to the right place.
A typical day with us may include sneaking up to a herd of buffalo, tracking down a pride of lions, tasting the tart fruit of a baobab or beating a hasty retreat from a herd of elephants.
No boat motors, no aircraft engines, no permanent camps or private concessions and few other tourists makes Gonarezhou National Park quite unique to any other park in Southern Africa.
The aim of our walking safaris is to provide one of the closest to nature experiences possible on the commercial safari circuit whilst not compromising on basic comforts or safety. To maximise guests’ enjoyment we prefer to have camp taken ahead of us and geocached at pre-arranged locations which allows us to walk between camps with a light day pack.
We take our time, looking at many of the smaller plants and animals as well as appreciating the larger ones. The distances and routes walked each day vary according to group dynamics and physical ability.
Usually we are up at first light and after having a light breakfast we set off on foot with a day pack with lunch and sufficient water for the day. Depending on the day’s route we will only arrive in camp in the mid to late afternoon which usually leaves sufficient time to relax and bathe before sunset.
To maintain the expedition feel, our fly camp is not set up which requires guests to participate with setting up camp and gives a feeling of accomplishment.
In order to get into the rhythm of the bush we recommend a minimum of four nights and a maximum of seven nights.
