South Africa Wilderness Walking Trails Guide

Wilderness Walking Trails
Travel Writer: EcoTravel Africa  

Seeing the big 5 and other dangerous animals from the security of a safari vehicle is exciting, but it is nothing compared to standing on your own two feet, deep in the African bush, miles from the nearest road and vehicle, and getting a close-up view of an African Lion, or a Black Rhino, or an African Elephant, or a Giraffe...

A hiking safari ensures a thrilling up-close and personal experience of the bush. Accompanied by armed guides and living in small bush camps, you'll be closer to nature than ever before.

Believe me, once you have stood in the middle of a wilderness area, hearing only your own heartbeat, and surrounded by the unmistakable scent of wildlife, you will be hooked. This is truly one of the most rewarding ways to experience the wildlife of Southern Africa.

In South Africa, the most popular areas for wilderness trails are the game parks of KwaZulu-Natal and the Kruger National Park, where there is a choice of seven different trails, each with its own special character and attractions. Many other regions of South Africa are also offering morning walks, walking safaris and wilderness trails.
