Get out of safari vehicle and stroll around the African soil that will offer you an absolute diverse feel of your surrounding. Whether you’re hiking through the wooded slopes close to Manyara, Arusha National Park, in the Serengeti or in the center of Tarangire National Park, a walking safari in Tanzania is undoubtedly the finest way to really soak up yourself in the African Bush. In fact, this is something that should be experienced firsthand! Our walking safari is the purest form of safari you can have. In fact, our walking safaris in Tanzania are absolutely diverse to game drives on a vehicle. On foot you’re a partaker in the world of wildlife instead of a spectator, which is a thrilling experience in itself.
Walking safaris offer guests a different perspective on the magic and awe of an African safari. In the company of trained park rangers and professional guides, visitors can access special areas which are not typically open to the public.
The main focus of a walking safari experience is to embark on slow paced, guided walks exploring different wildlife and big game species and landscapes in the bush.
Depending on the type of walking safari, visitors may see elephants and leopards up close in the Serengeti in northern Tanzania or on a week-long walking tour of Mahale Mountains National Park, home to some of the largest populations of chimpanzees in the world.
Guests can also opt to explore the wildlife rich Ngorongoro Crater rim and Rift Valley or the beautiful Lake Manyara.
Walking safaris are possible in Tanzania throughout the year. Where to walk in any given month is more nuanced as Tanzania is a huge country and its sheer size means that its climate varies considerably within it, as well as year on year.
Understanding the best time to visit Tanzania for a walking safari is important as this can impact accommodation, flight prices, availability and the weather that visitors can expect on their safari.
As a rule, the long dry season lasts from June to October across the country – rainfall is rare and this is generally considered the best time for a walking safari in most areas.
If walking on the Serengeti, it’s more about where the migration is and where you can catch up with the wildlife without the crowds.
The price of a walking safari package is difficult to estimate given costs can vary depending on the time of year, type of accommodation and how secluded it is, locations travelled to, activities selected and add-ons selected.
Walking guides for such safaris can start from USD $40 per person for short walks to $4,000 for a multi-day overnight trip. Carrying a small amount of Tanzanian currency, the Tanzania Shilling (TZS) is recommended as back-up when paying for smaller items.
