Walking Safari in Southern Africa | Sense Africa

Walking Safari

“A walking safari through the African wilderness is an absolute joy, it really is restoration for the soul. As soon as I get to Africa, I pack my bag and get out into the bush on foot.” Jenny Bowen, Director and founder

What to Expect on a Walking Safari Holiday

Walking safaris are a wonderful way to explore Africa whilst incorporating your hobby and keeping fit. Take time to explore the African bush, learn how to track animals, understand the traditional uses of the surrounding vegetation and listen to the calls of the local birdlife, all whilst on foot. It is not necessarily a massive hike at a fast pace, expect to stop and look at wildlife and admire the scenery as you walk through the bush. You never know what you will see.

Where to Walk

We can organise your own tailor-made walking safari / walking holiday where you can discover the bush at your own pace, and in a safe environment – where there are no Big Game! We provide you with maps and ideas and knowledge on the best routes for you. Or you can join an escorted trip with expert guides, including Jenny, to show you the African wilderness first hand. These African walking holidays cater for all levels of fitness and ability.

We recommend Eswatini (formerly Swaziland) for getting out on foot, it is ideal for walking and there are a wide variety of terrains, scenery and locations where you can walk safely amongst game and enjoy ‘real’ Africa at is best. 

What Past Guests Say

Bindu Pather

“Jenny Bowen, our guide was very friendly and efficient. She had a deep & extensive knowledge of Swaziland, sights, people and traditions.

I felt she was more a friend then just a guide, very keen on sharing her knowledge and intent on the group having the very best experiences. I certainly felt that my Swaziland trip was very much enhanced by Jenny.”
