Experience true nature, wildlife and the stunning landscapes of the Karoo.
Do a total four hikes in Big Five territory over three days accompanied by your dedicated Ranger. Be one with nature while hiking through the beautiful Sanbona Wildlife Reserve located in what was once the homeland of the San people.
Learn about the cultures, the fauna & flora, the Big Five, the Little Five and the Ugly Five from your Ranger. Then return to your tented camp for scrumptious meals, relaxation and a luxurious bed where you can listen to the sounds of the wild throughout the night.
This is a fully inclusive Safari and your local brands of beverages are included.
The Explorer Walking Safari runs during the warmer months from October to end of April and participation is restricted to people over 16 years old and up to 60 years old. People older than 60 would be required to meet certain medical criteria before being accepted.
The Explorer Walking Safari is a THREE day Safari including the touring time to and from the private reserve. The Explorer Walking Safari will depart from Cape Town every Friday morning finishing on Sunday afternoon back in Cape Town
On the Safari we are camping as close to nature as is possible.
You will hear the sounds of the wild when you are sleeping at night. You will encounter some of the many species of insects that abound in the area but take note that this is NOT a malaria area.
The camp attendants will do everything possible to ensure that no dangerous animals or other critters come to visit you at your tent.
It also means that we will enjoy the pristine environment and therefore over-indulgence in alcoholic beverages should be avoided. Water is the elixir of life – Consume it in abundance!
We pick you up on Friday morning for the tour to Sanbona Wildlife Reserve. We arrive at Dwyka Tented Camp to enjoy lunch and to meet your Ranger who will be with you throughout your Walking experience. Your Ranger will then transfer you to Explorer Camp and get you settled in before you depart on your first hike within the Sanbona Reserve.
On Saturday you will do an early hike and again in the late afternoon. The activities are adjusted in terms of the weather and the guests personal experience.
On Sunday morning you will do an early hike followed by breakfast before transferring out of the reserve to meet our Guide. We return to Cape Town with a scheduled stop for a Master Wine & Cheese Pairing or a drinks stop at a different venue depending on your wishes. We drop you off back at your hotel at approximately 17h00.
