More TOUCHED BY THE WILDERNESS SAFARIS
are a series of Safaris of varying lengths and destinations that have been brought together to allow our guests the opportunity to experience places that are still relatively remote and wild, allowing freedom of movement and not being cooped up in a vehicle for the entire day. We have put together the Safaris in such a way as to allow us the ability to experience special places, only accessible on foot, to learn about the ecosystems in which we find ourselves, to feel and touch, to listen and scent the wilderness.
Stalk, for example, quietly through the undergrowth, peering through foliage as an antelope delicately feeds on the forest floor. Listen to the call of the Jackal as dusk blankets the hills.
Allow the wilderness to touch and caress you with its moods. Dine on a simple freshly prepared meal on the open wood fire and sleep under the sparkling cloak of the evening sky, safe in tents or cabins. While on the same tour you are able to enjoy the excitement of visiting a Big 5 Game Reserve where we come into close contact with Elephant, Buffalo and Lion to name a few. Here we are able to relish viewing herds of Antelope, Warthog and Zebra for example from the safety of the tour vehicle.
This is not a power hiking exercise but a gentle walk in tune with the Wilderness. You don’t have to be super fit but simply healthy and mobile to enjoy the Wilderness, as we bring you into contact with the very heart of Africa.
