7 Days Adventure and Leisure Walking Safari | Karatu – Lake Eyasi

Safari Overview

Walking safaris in Tanzania offer an intimate and adventurous way to experience the country’s untouched landscapes and rich culture away from the usual tourist routes.

These safaris, lasting several days, take participants deep into remote areas, allowing them to explore the savannah and bush on foot, accompanied by a guide, a cook, and camping equipment for overnight stays under the stars. With a focus on social interaction, cultural learning, and the simple joys of outdoor life, these journeys are not just about observing wildlife but also about engaging with local communities, enjoying traditional dances, and learning through storytelling.

Organized by JAMBO MAASAI TOURS, the walks cover regions like the Ngorongoro Highland, offering breathtaking natural scenery. Travelers move like nomads, with their camps set up each night in new locations, providing a unique sense of adventure and connection to nature.

However, a genuine openness to embrace local culture and values is essential for a truly enriching experience.
