The guided wilderness walk- a walk on the wild side
To really appreciate all the Lions Bluff has to offer, you have to leave the safari vehicle behind; and take a walk. Slow in pace, wide-ranging in scenery, led by one of our trained safari guides, our guided walks are designed to offer a fascinating insight into the world of African trees, flowers, insects, reptiles, birds and animals. Tickle up a baboon spider, or ant lion, learn the art of tracking and how to tell which animals were there before you, learn how to light a fire without the use of matches, fire an arrow using arrows poisoned with desert rose sap, which roots to use when you have diarrhoea..our guides' knowledge is amazing and their enthusiasm infectious
As always, because we are a small lodge, we can tailor- make your bush walk to your desires.
Early Morning Bush Walk
We usually leave from Lions Bluff after an early morning cup of coffee and do a game drive in the open-sided vehicle to where you will begin.
The exact location depends on visibility, such as the length of the grass, and game movement.
Once out of the vehicle, the rangers give you a quick brief; mostly to determine out your interests. They are all brought up in or around the Sanctuary and are conversant with birds, insects, tracks, signs, flowers and plants. They will tell you the local names and uses of each plant, show you how to read the evidence of who has been there before you and can tell you about the local culture.
The walk lasts about an hour and a half and, ideally, ends with a full english breakfast under a tree, ( see bush breakfasts. )
You will need:
Dull coloured clothing
Many clients want a different kind of walking experience
As long as your safety is catered for we are happy to offer that.
