Thinking of doing something completely different this year? With the end of the year fast approaching – everyone is rushing off to book their villas on the beach. But if this is something you’ve been doing for the past few years, why not do something completely different this year? Why not go on a bush walk safari?
The truth is that the ocean will always be there for you, but the Kruger National Park… now this is an escape where you can expect the unexpected. But not just that, each year we work hard, we get stressed and we need to connect with nature to release our stress, and a great way to do this is with bush walk safaris. While we could give you 100 reasons why you should go on bush walk safaris, you only need two.
#1 Step Inside the Animals’ Domain and Experience a True Connection with Nature
We’ve all watched those safari movies where the tracker or guide has told the guests to remain both calm and in the car at all times – so why on earth would you consider walking instead? Well firstly, what you see in movies is very different from reality. Bush walk safaris are led by skilled and experienced Shangaan trackers who know exactly what they’re doing. Giving you the opportunity to experience the Kruger Park inside the animals’ domain, you get to experience the world on their terms.
No longer an observer, you’re now a detective looking out for bird calls, fresh tracks, mothers feeding their babies and prying eyes hanging from branches. Yes, it is exciting. Giving you a much deeper understanding of your environment, bush walks take you places that are inaccessible to vehicles, thus enabling you to experience and interact with your surroundings. You will look at medicinal plants, learn to use your natural bush survival skills, learn how to track, gain a deeper understanding of geology, and you’ll no doubt come face-to-face with some of the most dangerous predators in the world.
#2 A Healthy Getaway to Get your Senses and Adrenalin Going
They say that if you’re feeling overwhelmed or anxious, then hug a tree and you’ll feel calm and more balanced, and they couldn’t be more right. Yes, nature is incredible and can be incredibly healing to the soul. You see, bush walks are not just for experiencing wildlife in their natural habitat, they are also good to get your five senses and adrenalin going. Unlike long and tiring hikes or fast rides through the bush in an open 4×4 Land Rover, bush walks are slow, informative strolls where you don’t even have to be fit. Tailored to a pace and distance to suit guests, bush walks can be exhilarating and are a brilliant way to get the five senses on a heightened level. In addition, it is a healthy holiday which is a brilliant way to burn off calories and get the heart pumping.
A majestic and healing holiday that cannot be compared to any villa in Clifton, on the Seychelles or in Spain, bush walk safaris in the Kruger Park are simply a once-in-a-lifetime getaway that you’ll be talking about for years to come. So what are you waiting for? Get close to the bush and its wildlife with experienced guides and trackers who will show you the best-kept secrets of the Kruger Park.
