Exhilarating adventure safaris in Africa

August 23, 2018

Get your adventure kicks whilst on safari in Africa.

Holidays in Africa can be as exciting for extreme adventurers as traditional safari enthusiasts. Activities are diverse, generally incorporating some adventures that will keep you on dry land and others that will take you into the water.

Below are only some of the adventure safaris that we have predesigned. Travellers looking for something different in their itinerary can be accommodated with a tailor-made tour that will tick all the boxes.

Journey across Uganda

While the main attraction of Uganda is undoubtedly mountain gorilla trekking through the country’s misty mountains, there are many other opportunities to get your heart racing if you’re a thrill-seeker.

A Ugandan adventure tour offers a good mix of water- and land-based fun and takes you to various key highlights found across the country. The mighty Nile River is simply waiting for you to go white water rafting in the Jinja rapids. Another unique safari experience is horse-back riding across the Mburo National Park, which will have you trotting in the footsteps of Africa’s wildlife. Uganda, of course, affords you the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hike into the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park to encounter the critically endangered mountain gorillas.

Take to the ground in Zambia

The South Luangwa National Park is a great place to go on an extended walking safari in Zambia. In comparison to some of the other adventure activities, this is a relatively easier trip.

Well-known for its abundant wildlife, the Luangwa River Valley gives explorers a great chance to constantly learn about the fauna and flora that make up this particular country. The South Luangwa National Park, which is at the end of the Great Rift Valley, has an impressive concentration of game, including lion, leopards, and buffalo, as well as about 450 bird species. Throughout the Zambian walking tour, you will be led by extremely knowledgeable guides, who will tell you about different aspects of the local animals, birds, insects, and plants.

The camps used on the walking safaris in Zambia offer non-pretentious, intimate luxury in the African bush. Enjoy a well-earned meal before bedding down in a rustic chalet, which may just be so comfortable you won’t want to leave the next morning.

Adventure level: Easy

Get active in Botswana

An adventure in Botswana can be similar to that in Uganda in that there are a variety of dry and wet activities on offer to travellers. Those in Botswana are potentially less challenging, which will suit a beginner to intermediate fitness level.

After exploring the Moremi Game Reserve on a game drive, dugout canoe or boat cruise you’ll be guided on a walking safari through the Khwai Community Area, where you’ll get a chance to sight some fantastic wildlife as well as meet the local community that call this spot home. Jump onto a boat safari and cruise along the Selinda Spillway and sleep out in one of the game hides in the Linyanti area.
