Description

Swapping a vehicle for two feet is the way to explore the wilderness, like our ancestors once did: in the tracks of wild animals, absorbing the scents and sounds of nature, immersed in the great outdoors rather than merely observing it. In the safe hands of expert guides, walkers not only experience the excitement of sharing trails with big game but embark on a learning experience unlike any other, deepening their appreciation of the natural world.In this book, seasoned hikers Hlengiwe Magagula and Denis Costello cover the wealth of guided walking safaris across 21 big-game parks and reserves in South Africa (including two in eSwatini and one in Botswana). They unpack the options available in each park, from short dawn and dusk walks and multi-day wilderness trails to backpacking trails that span several days. Facilities range from ultra-luxurious to 'wild camping', either in tents or under the stars. Also included is a series of first-hand accounts that vividly illustrate the magical experience of exploring the bush on foot. An advisory section gives a rundown of when to go, what to pack, what to wear, and the dos and don'ts of walking in areas with big game.
