Walking safaris is the oldest way of traveling through quite classical compared with other forms of travel. Think of the health benefits it brings to our bodies, the proximity to nature enriches our soul with amusement. Walking safaris are the most natural way to see this pristine wilderness of Africa, and can be as strenuous or as relaxing as you wish, most camps and lodges or hotels will offer walking safaris in the surroundings.
Walking can allow you to get close to the game, and experience the wildlife from a more natural level. Trekking and tracking walks are also fascinating, and to walk with the Masai or Datoga/Hadzabe bushmen, who have walked the land for centuries, is magical.
Here are some of our walking safari suggestions:
Walk With the Maasai in Lake Natron and around Lake Manyara National park. To walk with these truly authentic tribesmen, who are warm and welcoming to guests, is truly an incredible experience. The millions of years of tracking knowledge, allows them to tell how large an animal was, how fast it was going if it is pregnant and much more. Walk with the young Bushmen on an initiation ritual. There are many options, but this should not be missed on any trip to Tanzania
Walk with the Maasai people
This is a truly magical experience, similar to the bushmen this tribe is one of the oldest surviving bushpeople in the world. Walk with them and learn more about their culture. These are typical pastoral societies living in the heart of Tanzania wild. From Serengeti to Ngorongoro crater, the Maasai have been traveling and spreading accross the country in search of water and shelters for their hundreds of cattle.
