When people think of Africa, they imagine safaris and traveling in an open-top Jeep across the vast desert with the hopes of spotting lions, tigers, giraffes, and elephants. However, more active, walking/hiking safaris appeal to those who want to understand their surroundings and feel the earth beneath their feet, knowing that each step is an adventure in and of itself. These are the purest forms of safaris. Walking safaris offer specialized operators who guide hikers through brush and uneven terrain, while pointing out game in the distance. The walks, while not strenuous, are usually not available to children under 12 years of age.
If walking is not your thing, but you still want to be more in touch with your surroundings, many operators offer canoeing safaris, which wind down the rivers – an opportunity to see not only land wildlife but aquatic as well.
Active safaris enable you to get closer to nature then you ever thought possible. Whether walking or canoeing, you are one with the earth – one with Africa.
