a walk on the wild side

The guided wilderness walk

Bush Walk

Awake  with the African Sunrise  and  take a drive  in our  open-sided game vehicle to an area where it is safe to walk in the wilderness. Accompanied by Lumo  Community  Wildlife  Sanctuary’s  skilled  rangers,  walk  amongst the tracks and signs, flora and fauna of this protected area.

This is a gentle ramble, suitable for all ages for those with an enquiring mind about the world  around them. Allow our  ranger to enjoy showing  you the environment in which they grew up, their intimate knowledge of the insects, birds, tracks and  signs. Learn which bushes are  used  to cure  tummy ache, which  store  water  underground and  how  to light  a  fire  without  using matches. Our  vehicle  will follow you at a discreet distance so that, should you tire, you can simply return to the lodge.

Early Morning Bush Walk

Leaving Lions Bluff after an early morning cup of coffee in our open sided game vehicle you are taken on a short game drive to the start of the Bush Walk. 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. The rangers, all brought up in and around the Sanctuary are knowledgeable on the 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.
