a walk on the wild side
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.
The walk lasts about an hour and a half and, ideally, ends with a full english breakfast under a tree.
You will need:
Hat, Dull coloured clothing, Sun lotion, Comfortable shoes, Binoculars, Camera
Many clients want a different kind of walking experience. As long as your safety is catered for we are happy to offer that.
