Arusha national park

We call Arusha National park a boutique National Park. That’s because even though it is smaller than most parks, it offers so much, from lakes to waterfalls to wildlife. Visit our blog to learn more about a walking safari in Arusha National Park.


Tarangire national park

A walking safari in Tarangire National Park is a treat to the eyes. You will see Baobab trees and Acacia woodlands. Expect to see lots of elephants, buffalos, wildebeests, girraffes and zebras. You could also spot a leopard or lion, which you cannot find at Arusha National Park. Tarangire is mostly known for its abundance in elephants.


Lake Manyara national park

There are a variety of walking tours you could take here, but we recommend the treetop walkway. A unique experience that you will always remember. This is a walkway suspended along the trees of the park. You can see wildlife from the top – how amazing is that!

Serengeti National Park

Last but not the least, Serengeti National Park has many walking safari tours to choose from.


Getting up-close with the wildlife in arguably one of the best National Parks in East Africa is a dreamlike experience. Many people don’t know of this option at all, since there are special zones where game-drives are not permitted. The guides in this tour are armed and highly experienced.

Not many tour companies offer this walking safari.
