Nature walks and Bush walks
Nature walks are possible at practically every camp or lodge, mainly within the property’s grounds, and are great for stretching your legs after your morning game drive. Forest walks are great for seeing birds, butterflies and to appreciate the natural beauty of the indigenous forests. Naturalist guides accompany you as you see, touch and taste the plants and learn about their traditional uses. Learn about animal tracks, watch birds, and with luck, approach plains game such as antelopes and zebras and giraffes. Nature walks are also ideal for children, who may not be old enough to experience bush walks.
Bush walks are carried out in the open savannah and bush land, and may be accompanied by armed park guides. You would get the nature walk experience with the added bonus of the possibility to observe elephants and buffalo. Trail blazing through the dense forests in Rwanda on the Congo-Nile Trail is exciting and a great adventure, and bush walks and multiple-day walking safaris in big game country accompanied by experienced guides are especially recommended in Kenya and Tanzania.
