There is nothing quite like a walking safari in Africa and one country which really delivers this well is Tanzania.
What I love so much about a walking safari in Tanzania is the diversity and contrast that it allows.

In Northern Tanzania, one can go walking in the Serengeti plains and the Ngorongoro Crater region, with a fly camp which is fully serviced, erected for you on an individual basis. There is no better way of discovering the bush, seeing wildlife, but also learning about the homeopathic properties of plants and trees as well as learning to identify spoormarks in the soil and get to know the birdlife and insect life (or entymology). You have a superb Tanzanian guide to share his knowledge with you!

Then what about going to Lake Natron and spending time with one of the last hunter-gatherers, the Hadzabe tribe? This is a highlight for so many clients!
Finally, fly camp in the southern part of Tanzania – my favourite being Katavi, followed by the Selous and finally Ruaha. These are three very different and beautiful regions with not another soul. If you want to get away from it all, in areas which are so incredibly beautiful but also unbelievably diverse, allowing a great mix of wildlife – then this must be for you! Sleep beneath the stars, dine on the most wonderful food, beautifully prepared for you by your cooks and presented to you by your complement of staff, before finally falling asleep with the twinkling of the stars being your last memory! There is something wonderful knowing that you are the only people in the reserve, whilst the sun sets and the birds take up their night positions on the boughs of the trees.
