Here are two of Africa’s finest walking holiday destinations where you are guaranteed to have a wonderful adventure.
The Walking safari in the Masai Mara takes place along a river and takes two to three hours. Across the Savanna you will enjoy watching wildlife in their natural habitats. Quite interestingly, you will be walking among some of the wild animals like giraffes, zebras and wildebeests. During sunset, you can hike to the Naumare Hills and watch the stunning site of the sun setting over the Mara. Trekking in the Mara is not challenging and you need no walking experience to enjoy the sceneries.
The tip of Mt Kilimanjaro is the only place you can gaze down on the rest of Africa. Walking Holidays require you to be fit and more so if you plan to hike Mt Kilimanjaro. The walk takes six days and covers thirty seven miles. One of the easiest routes to get to the top is the Marangu route. Before the hike an extra day is needed to allow you to acclimatize. Your hike will be through blossoming rainforest and even possibilities of observing wildlife. The hike down the mountain is tiring but very fruitful as you get to watch the ice cliffs and glaciers at the mountain’s summit.
Other African places for walking holidays destinations include Johannesburg, South Luangwa safari in Zambia and Gorilla and Chimp safari in Uganda.
