Walking Safaris

Experience East Africa on foot

Our walking safaris take you on a journey of discovery through the savannahs, forests, and mountains of East Africa, providing an intimate and authentic experience of the country’s wildlife and culture.


Walking safaris offer a unique opportunity to observe wildlife, including the once-endangered white rhino, up close and personal, and to appreciate the subtle details of the African wilderness that are often missed on traditional game drives.

The most epic walking safaris in East Africa

In Uganda, you can explore the vast savannahs of Queen Elizabeth National Park, the rugged mountains of the Rwenzori Mountains National Park, or the lush forests of Kibale National Park. Each park offers a unique and unforgettable walking safari experience.

In Tanzania, areas for walking safaris exist in Tarangire National Park and in the northern part of Serengeti National Park. If accompanied by a park ranger, walking is also allowed in the Ngorongoro Conservation area, though not within the crater itself. 

In Rwanda, Akagera National Park is the main area, with a walking tour that goes along the park’s perimeter.

Recommended Tours

Our walking safaris offer more than just game viewing. You will also have the opportunity to learn about the local cultures and traditions of Uganda, as our guides share their knowledge of the country’s history and customs.
