Zimbabwe is one of the very few countries which allow walking safaris in all its national parks including the country’s largest game park Hwange National Park, the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls, and Mana Pool National Park, both of the latter being Zimbabwean UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Zimbabwe’s walking safari guides are highly qualified due to the difficulties in acquiring license. Clients can rely on their extensive knowledge to experience the best of the country.

“A typical walking safari takes two to four hours of gentle slow paced exploration. Travellers are accompanied by professional guides and experienced game scouts who will ensure their safety, and encourage them to try new things. Multi-day and multi-camp walking and even canoeing safaris are options for those who want to spend a couple of hours walking between each camp interspersed with canoeing, and expect their luggage at the next camp. Travellers can also choose to walk part of the way and rest their legs and game drive the remainder,” says seasoned safari guide and A to A Safaris Managing Director – Asia, Kim Nixon.
