Walking Safaris/ Trails


"To awaken the love for the Wilderness in a person you simply have to expose them to the wilderness and the wilderness will do the rest"

There is no better way to experience nature in its true form than on foot, to feel Africa under your feet is to be part of Africa.

Walking safaris are conducted by Colin Patrick in some of Africa's most pristine wilderness areas. The emphasis is on low impact. (Leave only tracks) back pack trails. This is walking at its best where trailists take only the bare essentials and go back to the basics of finding water in dry river beds making their nightly fire using age old methods and literally living amongst and learning about Africa's wildlife.

Trails are conducted over a 4 day/ 3 night period and are either on a backpack style basis or walking trails from a rustic "fly" camp. A maximum of 8 people are taken on each trail and are accompanied by experienced guides who will provide the group with a true wilderness experience and impart there vast knowledge of African wildlife to the group.

"Although I am a qualified trails guide, I really wanted to expand my knowledge and understanding of Track and Sign, not only for myself but also for my guests. Colin's course provided me with a new way to look at my environment and to really get into the mind of the animal. To tell a story from the bush newspaper is a skill learnt over many years, the course and Colin have given me a head start to this incredible art. A wonderful experience and learning opportunity which I highly recommended. As a footnote, it has already impacted both my fellow guides and guests with positive feedback" - Duncan Boustead
