Guided Walking Safari

Tanzania walking safari is a captivating and immersive way to connect with nature, offering a unique perspective on the country’s remarkable wildlife and landscapes. In this guide, we’ll embark on a journey into the heart of Tanzania’s wilderness, where you’ll discover the joys and adventures of a walking safari, a thrilling experience that allows you to get up close and personal with Africa’s incredible biodiversity.


    Walking safaris offer an immersive and authentic way to experience Tanzania’s wildlife. You actively participate in the wilderness, making it a thrilling adventure. Options range from short day treks to mobile camping, where your camp is moved for you, emphasizing immersion and the outdoors over luxury. Trekking involves backpacking and camping in different locations each night.

    Why Choosing Walking Safaris?

    Wildlife Up-Close

    In a vehicle, animals often overlook your presence, but on foot, you become part of their world, offering a unique perspective. Walking enables close encounters and a chance to observe smaller wildlife that's easily missed from a vehicle.

    Remote Access

    Walking into isolated areas, far from vehicle access, brings unparalleled freedom, solitude, and immersion in nature. It's a unique connection, allowing close wildlife encounters and exploration off the beaten path that game drives can't replicate.

    Rules for Walking Safaris in Tanzania National Parks

    Walks in the National Parks must adhere to TANAPA’s (Tanzanian National Park Authorities) rigorous guidelines, which are in place to ensure that walking is as safe as possible. At any given time, no more than six visitors may go on a walk, and they must be escorted by at least one TANAPA-certified armed ranger who must adhere to particular walking routes. However, because these laws are new to Tanzania’s national parks, we would only recommend walking safaris from lodges that we know have a track record of providing consistently good walking safaris with well-established guides.

    Tanzania Walking Safari Guide

    You will journey into remote Serengeti areas with an expert walking guide, a ranger, a chef, and porters who will carry the majority of the equipment. All you need is a light backpack (limit 15-20 lb) and the ability to put up your own lightweight tent. Sleeping in a tent under the stars, with only the canvas between you and the bush, is an unforgettable experience.

    * Prices p.p. incl. private safari guide and safari jeep, hotel and parking fees (from 6 people). Price excl. international flight tickets.

    The word ‘Safari’ is the Swahili word meaning ‘long journey’. During a safari, people travel through the bush or jungle to discover beautiful nature and wildlife. Nowadays, a safari is known as a journey through African countries while visiting one or more nature parks. Safari drives in the parks, looking for wildlife, are also called ‘game drives’.


    An African safari is a journey of a lifetime. Choosing to arrange your private adventure with Tanzania experts means that every step of the trip is as memorable as it should be.
