Tanzania Walking Safari
A walking safari is the best way to get as close as possible to the wildlife you came to Tanzania to see. After seeing the beautiful animals, plants and trees up close and personal you’ll have a better understanding of how the African ecosystem works. There are many different safari walks available in Tanzania, ranging from easy to strenuous.
A Tanzania walking safari is an unforgettable experience and is completely safe as you are accompanied by an experienced guide and park ranger. You will always remember your first time seeing game up close and on foot and nothing compares to it; a true bush experience.
Ngorongoro Walking Safaris
In order to ensure availability of a ranger, it is recommended that you book your safari walks in advance. It may occasionally be possible that adverse weather conditions happens (low cloud and rain) making it impossible to do the walk. We recommend good walking shoes or boots, a sunhat and a waterproof jacket – just in case of a shower of rain. During these walks small numbers of animals will be seen but the main attraction of the walk is the beauty of the scenery, not the game viewing.
All walks are accompanied by an armed Ranger from the Ngorongoro Conservation Area Authority. Although the risk of coming into contact with a dangerous, large animal is small, it is a law that you are accompanied by a ranger.
Costs: The fee per day for a ranger is US$50.00 per person, which has to be included to the tour package. It is customary to give him a tip if you are satisfied with his services. The only other costs are transport to/from the start point of the walk which also has to be included in the tour package.
