What is this safari about?
This safari takes guests along the walking trails of Northern Tuli, as well as Mashatu Game Reserve to cover between eight to 20 kilometers (five to 12 miles) per day, depending on the fitness level of guests.
The fully catered wilderness trails are bespoke, but usually run over three days / four nights – we can accommodate shorter or longer duration trails, subject to camp availability.
Accommodation is at two rustic permanent camps - Serolo or Mohave - or at the trail’s camp out in the wilderness. Backpack trails are also available. Two experienced professional rangers accompany you on the trails.
Due to the heat, this safari is only recommended from March to October.
Why is this special?
Walking is the ideal way to experience the raw beauty of Tuli and being on foot is by far the most exhilarating way to experience the bush!
Tuli is renowned for its elephant population and often there is the opportunity to sit and watch these giants go by.
Tracking is one of the special skills of the guide team, so should they come across fresh tracks of predators and decide to trail them, then the planned route is abandoned to track with the objective of finding the animal.
This must be the best wilderness walking experience available in Botswana, ably guided by Stuart Quinn one of safaiFRANK’s favourite trail guides.
Stuart also has complete freedom to tailor the trail to guest's needs.
Where is this?
The Northern Tuli Game Reserve is located on the east side of Botswana, bordering on South Africa and Zimbabwe and on the banks of the Limpopo River.
Who can go?
- Small groups, with minimum of two and maximum of eight guests.
- Children must be at least 16 years old to participate.
What should I expect to pay?
USD $325 per night, per person, sharing. The cost is fully inclusive other than drinks.
What extensions do you recommend?
For some pampering after the walking safari we suggest a two night stay at the luxurious and close by Mashatu Tented Camp.
For the serial trail walkers there are similar experiences in the Greater Kruger Park South Africa, or in Northern Botswana.
