Discover the excitement, drama and ancient secrets of the African wilderness& on foot! This up close and personal African walking safari experience takes place at Phinda Private Game Reserve. Phinda in the Maputuland region of Kwa-Zulu Natal, features 15 000 hectares of game-rich land. Phinda neigbours the Greater St. Lucia Wetland Park - which is a world heritage site - to the east and is only 30 km due west of the fringed beaches of the Indian Ocean.

DAY 1: WALKING SAFARI IN PHINDA
After arriving at the reserve, you are transferred to the walking camp. The accommodation while on safari is in large walk-in safari tents in a scenic bush setting in true African Safari style. These spacious en-suite tents feature comfortable beds, hot bucket showers and flush w.c. Two comfortable chairs are on the ‘verandah’ under awning. Memorable evenings are spent dining under the stars around an open fire. Breakfasts and lunches are served in spectacular bush settings. Guests will dine under canvas during inclement weather. This is a luxurious, fully serviced ‘under canvas’ safari experience& !

Memorable evenings are spent dining under the stars around an open fire.

DAY 2, 3: WALKING SAFARI
Each day guests enjoy a four to five hour morning walk, and a short pre-sunset walk and night game-drive combination. Walking ensures a definite up close and personal experience of the bush.

While observing a herd of elephant from a safe distance or tracking a rhino is possible, the emphasis is on micro-systems, and time is spent observing spiders, ant lions, dung beetles and other small yet perfect wonders of nature. The walks always cover new terrain, ensuring a comprehensive wilderness experience. Nocturnal game drives reveal the primal drama of the big cats in their inexorable quest for prey.

Reasonable standards of fitness are a prerequisite but distances covered will depend on wildlife encounters. Guests will be taught the basics of the art of tracking.

A maximum of eight guests can be accommodated on this safari.

DAY 4: THE SAFARI ENDS
A short 1 to ½ hour stroll generates a good appetite for a hearty brunch. At 11pm guests are transferred to their departure point.
