FAQs

How fit should you be for a walking safari?

© Elephant Pepper Camp Walking in the Masai Mara

You don’t actually need to be very fit to go on a walking safari, but you do need to be in good health and be able to walk at a gentle pace comfortably for 3-4 hours at a stretch, sometimes in quite warm conditions.  The ground can be a bit uneven, depending on where you are, but for the most part, you won’t need to negotiate very steep climbs.  It’s a different kettle of fish if you are going Gorilla trekking or for more arduous hikes, when you do need to be better able to cope with steep terrain and possibly a quicker pace.  Often your comfort on a walking safari will come down to your choice of shoes and clothes.  You can read more about what we recommend you pack for a walking safari here.
