Walking through the bush has the effect of making everything for intense or heightened. The awareness that you are walking through the veld where man-eating predators lurk or where aggressive herbivores like buffalo and rhinoceros will not think twice about trampling you if they feel threatened, has that effect on people. It is an amazing sensory experience with every sound, every smell and every little detail more vivid than when you are in the back of a game-viewing car. It is as if you move from observer to participant when you get out of the car and start to walk.

Accompanied by a ranger this excursion is a full-on interactive and learning experience. Up close and on foot you get to see things from up-close. Your guide will point out interesting plants, insects and birdlife and will show you how to identify the spoor and scat of different animals.
