For many a traditionalist, the walking safari is the best and most intimate way to explore the wilderness, and few places better a Tanzania’s Ruaha National Park when it comes to exploring the wilds on foot, especially when hosted by redoubtable Kichaka Expeditions.
Led by some of Tanzania’s finest guides, a Walking the Wilds of Ruaha experience will take you away from the relative familiarity of the semi-permanent seasonal camp, and into a world as wild as it gets. Catering for as many as six travellers, the guided walk can take two to three days, your camp set and struck in hours. Simple, extremely well designed, each tent sleeps two, and comes with private bucket showers and toilets. Meals are prepared in camp, and are delicious.
To walk Ruaha with guides whose ability to weave narratives out of vistas is second to none represents something of an extraordinary opportunity. The pace, the knowledge gained, the experience of spending time around the campfire – this is the raw and intensely beautiful life.
