The journey of the two million wildebeest
What is the purpose of this safari?
Did you know that only 25% of the Serengeti is used for the majority of the tourism that occurs there? This means that tourists aren’t allowed in 75% of the Serengeti’s wilderness areas. Only a few companies have been given permission to go on foot and go on walking safaris in these areas.
We’ve all heard horror stories about 50 to 100 vehicles being crammed into a single Serengeti wildlife sighting. A multi-day Serengeti walking safari, on the other hand, can go for up to 9 days without seeing a vehicle or other tourists. As you walk to places that perhaps no other human has ever visited, your exploration is limited only by the amount of time you are willing to spend out there.
The true magic of a Serengeti walking safari is being out in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by nothing but grasslands and endless amounts of wildlife. Feeling the Serengeti’s fertile soil beneath your feet and hearing the sounds of thousands of wildebeest passing by without an engine running. Climbing ancient granite boulders to gain a better perspective and appreciate the true wilderness is a must. It’s truly unlike anything else you’ve ever experienced!
