Awaken your ecological intelligence
Samara is one of few game reserves where walking forms an integral part of the safari experience. With fragile ecosystems and a “tread lightly” policy, our preferred form of off-roading is on our own two feet, providing the ideal place for an unforgettable walking safari.
What a way to explore the bush!
Let our experienced guides walk you through our five vegetation biomes, pointing out the signs of the wild invisible from the vehicle. Marvel at busy termites as they go about their daily business, listen out for the call of the Honeyguide leading you to wild honey and feel your senses heighten in every way as you navigate the sort of landscape our prehistoric ancestors dwelled in long ago, once again home to the Big Five.
Explore on foot
Reconnect with Nature
Every tree, every rock and every track has a story to tell. During your walking safari, breathe in the silence and space so foreign to our everyday urban lives and feel yourself reconnecting to Nature. No one can fail to be moved by the sound of trickling water in a stream, the gentle whistling of the wind rustling the leaves, the sense of suspense and awe at walking to within metres of endangered cheetah and rhino.
Unforgettable & humbling
If the conditions are right, you'll get the opportunity during your walking safari to track these iconic animals on foot, with safety always top of mind. What a privilege to enter their space and witness these animals living wild and free. An unforgettable and humbling experience awaits.
