Guided walking safari

Want to truly experience Africa, its smells, sounds and that unmistakeable wilderness feeling? Then get off the safari vehicle and walk a little closer.

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.

To Note

  • Daily rates at Karoo Lodge and The Manor include two game drives and optional guided bush walks. These bush walks are offered after the main game drive has returned to the lodge, subject to availability.
  • Many game drives will include a certain amount of walking and tracking. If mobility is an issue for a member of your party, please advise Reservations when booking. None of the walks during game drives are particularly strenuous but a basic level of fitness is recommended.
  • Longer hikes can also be arranged on request. We recommend a minimum of 3 nights if you are keen to explore Samara’s vast landscapes on foot.
  • Plains Camp is an off-grid tented camp welcoming 8 guests focusing on walking safaris and reconnecting with Nature in elegant simplicity. Learn more here.
