There are thousands of wildlife destinations on the African continent but few that really offer an authentic wilderness experience to tourists. Driving in an open game viewing vehicle staying in a luxury lodge is not necessarily a true safari experience. Staying in a rustic, primitive camp and experiencing the African bush on foot is much closer to an ultimate wilderness type of recreation. That is what we offer the more adventurous tourist – wilderness, remoteness, tranquility and a big bonus: no other people! Although the trails are conducted in big five areas the purpose of these trails is to have an authentic wilderness experience. There are 7 different wilderness trails to choose from. Being on foot makes you feel part of the environment and not removed from it as you would be when you spend your time in a vehicle. It tunes you in to all facets of nature because you can see, smell, hear, touch, feel and even taste wild things. Driving is a visual experience – walking is sensual!
