Take a Walking Safari with a White Rhino in the Mosi O Tunya National Park in Livingstone Zambia. This is a unique and rare opportunity to experience the thrill of walking in the untamed Zambian bush and to see wild game animals in their natural habitat.
“Take a Walk on the Wild Side”
– The Pick-up and transfer –
The Walking Safari Experience starts early with your collection from your Lodge or Hotel, and your transfer to the Park, which takes approximately 15-20mins. The early start is necessary to avoid walking in the heat, which can build up very quickly.
It is important you have suitable walking shoes, hats and bush friendly attire. On arrival at the Park Gate we will organize an escort Scout to accompany the group and take a short drive to where we will start the Walk.
– Starting the Walk –
Whilst you enjoy a cup of Tea or Coffee with a fresh Muffin, the Guide will give a full briefing on what you can expect to see, how to get the most from the Walk and most importantly the Do’s and Don’ts whilst walking.
– The walking Safari –
The actual time spent on the Walking Safari is approximately three hours. However a lot of the time will be spent quietly observing the wildlife and in discussion with the Guide. You will be walking at a leisurely pace set by yourselves and you can stop as frequently as you wish, to ask questions and discuss any aspect that particularly interests you.
The Guide will find the White Rhino and track as much of the large game as possible. Cold water is supplied on the Walk but half way through the Guide will stop at a suitable spot for refreshments, which consists of Homemade iced lemon juice with cake and cookies to recharge your energy levels.
At the end of the Walk you will meet up with the transfer vehicle at a predetermined spot where an ice cold soft drink will be waiting. After Cold Drinks you are transferred back to your Lodge/Hotel. The whole excursion takes between four and four and a half hours.
