Bush Walking Safaris
Following morning coffee and rusks or afternoon tea and cakes you will leave camp for a wilderness walk into the 2,000 hectare Kwa Madwala private conservancy.
Rangers may make use of vehicles in cases of certain sightings far from camp. This is to bridge distances between sightings.
Kwa Madwala is fairly flexible in terms of time slots for the walking safaris, however as a general guideline it is advisable in the summer months to look at walking in the early morning or late afternoon as the sun is often very strong and dehydrating between the hours of 11.00 – 15.00.
Bush Walk Options
Walking Safaris Options can be one, two or three hours long depending on your preference.
The focus of the walks is given to trees, shrubs, overall vegetation, insects and spoor. Smaller species are often seen including tortoise and snakes although seeing some of the larger animals such as elephant, zebra and rhino is also common. Your ranger will also be able to point out and explain details of many fascinating animal tracks.
The walk departs from camp, traverses through the reserve and then returns to camp.
Expect to get very close to nature with some of the most experienced game rangers Africa has to offer. Their tracking ability is truly impressive and will educate and fascinate you.
Kwa Madwala tries wherever possible to employ people from local communities. As a result the majority of our rangers are from under privileged disadvantaged backgrounds. They have an excellent knowledge of the African bush with tracking skills second to none. However you may experience a lack in knowledge of worldly events and issues. We ask you kindly respect this.
