Gamewalks in the Kruger National Park: Enquiries/ bookings on arrival


Walking in the African Bush

Also known as wilderness trails, walking trails allow a more adventurous visitor the chance to experience the bushveld on foot for four days.

The trails are carefully selected to give you a holistic bush experience with two experienced rangers sharing their knowledge of the local bushveld ecosystems. Trails are offered in the Northern, Central and Southern parts of the Kruger National Park.
