Do a Walking Safari in The Lower Zambezi

The modern-day walking safari originated in the Luangwa Valley in the early 60's - the art has since been perfected by a series of old school Professional Guides particularly in Zambia and Zimbabwe.

It's clearly the best way to experience the African bush, its variety of habitats and host of mammals, reptiles, insects and birds. It's a reasonably loose term to describe a variety of activities on foot; including short trails, expeditionary trips with backpacks and lodge-based safaris with vehicle and boat back-ups.

The lower Zambezi offers particularly good terrain and variety for walking trails. The area is game-rich and is renowned for its bird life. Large and small game is encountered on these trails and includes Elephant, Buffalo, Lions, Leopard, Hippo, various antelope species and smaller game.

Many river lodges on the Zambian shoreline of the lower Zambezi offer walking safaris. Vehicles and boats are often used for accessing areas of particular interest, or where game activity is high, armed Professional Guides and Scouts are used to locate and explain the many fascinating aspects in these areas.

Some walking safari lodges are located downstream in the remote Lower Zambezi National Park. This is a relatively unexplored territory with a variety of game species in varying habitats. The area is well known for its healthy population of endangered Wild Dog.
