African Safari Walks offers a unique guided walking safari experience inside the 5,650sq mile Hwange National Park. Situated a little over 60 miles from Victoria Falls, Hwange National Park is home to around 100 species of mammals including elephant, rhinoceros, giraffe, buffalo, lion, leopard, hyena, cheetah, wild dog, zebra and a wide variety of antelopes. There are also as many as 400 bird species. African Safari Walks’ walking safaris and game drives are the ideal way to unwind, photograph, learn, experience and enjoy African wildlife in their natural setting.

African Safari Walks is purely about approaching wild animals while on foot. All the company’s safari guides are experts at steering inquisitive tourists into close-up wildlife viewing positions during a walking safari. African Safari Walks’ celebrated, knowledgeable and passionate guide Kaz uses his well-honed guiding talents to walk tourists as close as 65ft from a pack of wild dogs, 200ft from an obstinacy of buffalo, 230ft from a parade of elephants or 330ft from a pride of resting lions. Feel the power and hear the breath of a five-ton elephant bull as it feeds while you watch and stand safely close-by under the careful eye of an armed and highly competent safari guide.

This walking wildlife safari is conducted out of the owner-run camp, which is located on the banks of the Lukosi River in the heart of Hwange National Park’s Sinamatella area. The camp offers guests rustic luxury hospitality. It’s an authentic rustic experience, with no electricity, running water or internet. Camp staff provide full hospitality and guests are expected to sit back, relax and enjoy. The camp consists of six Meru-style guest tents with al fresco en suite bathrooms featuring flush toilets, warm water bucket showers, indoor solar lanterns, outdoor paraffin lamps, bedding, mattresses and crisp linen. Freshly cooked meals and hot and cold drinks are served in the communal dining tent. All dinners are three-course meals. A power point for charging cameras is available in the dining area. Afternoon game drives involve a selection of sundowner snacks and drinks including gin and tonics, beers, wine and more.
