Walking Safaris

The wildlife in Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve have never been exposed to large groups of people.

The wildlife is therefore shy to noise and the best way to explore, is on foot. Led by an expert guide and armed park scout walking safaris traverse deep into the wilderness. The topography is varied with a mix of rugged terrain, miombo woodland and rainforest.

Learn animal tracks and the medicinal properties of indigenous plants. Encounter colourful wildlife in – the – last unspoilt wilderness of Africa.
