Trio Of Treats – Luangwa Walking Safaris
Presenting three of our favourite – Luangwa Walking Safaris
Walking safaris were first pioneered in this park by Norman Carr, and are conducted by a licensed walking guide accompanied by an armed national parks game scout. Most lodges and camps offer morning and afternoon walks. Multi-day walks are also offered, during which guests hike from bush camp to bush camp or stay in mobile tents. Walking safaris are only conducted from June-October during the dry season when the foliage has thinned out enough for safe walking. Children under the age of 12 are not allowed on walks.
Walking safaris are the highlight of many visitors’ trips to Africa and are certainly a favorite way of experiencing the bush. For those who would enjoy walking 3 to 7 miles per day at a reasonable pace and wish to experience nature up close, they are highly recommended.
