Zimbabwe Exploration: Hwange Walking Safari

Hwange Walking Safari Itinerary

Zimbabwe walking safaris have always been regarded as one of the finest ways to get a feel for the wilderness in this spectacular country. This walking trail allows guests to get their feet on the ground to really feel, smell and touch Africa but still allowing for exploration further afield by vehicle. Beginning and ending our journey at Wilderness Safaris camps frames the adventure with indulgence and luxury, especially at Linkwasha Camp, our grand finale.
