Walking Tour Excursion

Walking Tour through Tarangire National ParkWe offer this specialized itinerary that offers a first hand natural feel of being in the wilderness, spotting wildlife on foot supported and guided by professional wildlife guides and armed national park rangers. The idea behind the walking tour is to be able to “watch” wildlife rather than to “spot” wildlife from a vehicle. Viewing wildlife in relation to its ecology by hearing, feeling and smelling their environment as they do, and more importantly, experiencing the small wonders of the African bush from its inhabitants point of view, is an experience like no other. The “watching” of wildlife allows guests to see the highly specialized behavior of the animals in areas where vehicles cannot possible reach or interfere with their on going activities. Participating in the walking requires patience and peace so not to startle the animals being watched, adding to the safety measure in this activity. The quality of experience is top notch especially for new safari enthusiasts. These tours require participants to walk up to two miles per day which requires a certain level of fitness and ability to move about rough and tumble landscapes, so proper gear and ability are required.
