Activities:

Duration: Three nights with three days walking.

Format: The three night safari usually starts and ends at our Trails camps. Two nights will be spent at one camp and then one night at our other Trails camp. Depending on availability there is an option to spend one or two nights at either Selinda or Zibadianja. This request must be made at the time of booking the Walking Trail.

The format of your trail will most likely be that the guests will arrive at around midday and be transferred by 4x4 Landcruiser to the Trails camp, that afternoon it will either be a game walk or drive, depending on how the guests feel. The next morning will be a much longer walk around the area and then back to camp for brunch. After a siesta the afternoon activity can either be a walk or a drive, again at the guest’s request.

The next morning the walk will take the guests to the next Trails Camp in time for brunch. The afternoon walk will be around the area of the camp. The next day the guests will either fly out or go to either Selinda or Zibadianja.

Walking is relatively easy over flat, firm ground with few sandy patches. The morning walk is 7-10km  (4-5hours). An afternoon walk of 3-4km (2-3hours) is conducted in the vicinity of each fly camp.

Night drives are available with the support vehicle doubling as a game drive vehicle.
