Bush walks are sensory experiences and you will find that somehow your awareness has been heightened. Every sound and scent is magnified and you can get closer to nature than ever before.

The Experience

KwaZulu-Natal bush walks are usually conducted at the cooler times of the day especially in the morning, so you may have to rise early. After a snack and drink, your ranger will give a short safety briefing and talk about dos and don'ts in the bush and how to behave if you encounter wildlife on the walk. Bush walks are usually between 1 and 3 hours long.On the walk you follow in a line behind the ranger (sometimes there is a tracker who joins in). Along the way your ranger will stop to indicate various points of interest and to share his / her knowledge. This is a fascinating opportunity to understand how many aspects of nature fit together to create the cycle of life.You could investigate the gossamer wings of a dragonfly or the complexities of a spider web. Your ranger will also explain about the healing properties of certain plants and show you different animal tracks in the sand. Any birds and animals will be identified and you will find out interesting facts about how they live and their natural habitats.

Where to go

On a KwaZulu-Natal safari you have an amazing array of choices when it comes to lodge location - you could stay in the heart of the bush, go for a bush and beach combination, head for higher ground or enjoy a visit to the Zulu Kingdom.The flora and fauna you encounter will depend on which area you are walking in such as in a river valley, rare sand forest or mountain bushveld. In any case, you will be able to burn off the effects of wonderful safari cuisine and savour your surroundings!
