When thinking of walking in Tanzania, the image conjured is of Maasai herders journeying across the plains on foot; a stereotypical vision of many visitors to Africa. Couple these vistas with the northern circuit’s unlimited game viewing and you have the ultimate walking safari opportunity.

Our dry season Tanzania walking safaris include time in the best locations in national parks, private reserves and conservation areas. They offer a range of experiences such as full day walking safaris, game drives, night drives and cultural hikes.

The Northern Serengeti is one of our favourite walking safari destinations, primarily because the plains are vast and wild. And we select camps that are located in quieter tourism sectors, but close to large densities of game. During the dry season, guests may even catch a river crossing during the Great Migration.

We include walks wherever possible, but undoubtedly the highlight of the trip for keen walkers and hikers is a full day hike on the Ngorongoro crater rim and the inevitable, informal interactions with resident Maasai villagers.

Chris dedicates his life to having as much fun as possible. After 13 long years in the commercial catering industry, Chris realized that he had forgotten how to breathe. So in 2001, armed with a desire to enjoy his working hours, he took a deep breath and walked out of the office. Now, as he pounds the ground on a trail run, climbs a rock face, or rides a bicycle, Chris enjoys every breath. As a result, he constantly inspires travelers on his tours with his energy, enthusiasm, and pure enjoyment of life. Chris is a consummate organizer and loves the little operational details that go with managing or overseeing a tour.

After earning a doctorate in molecular biotech, Jacqui served time in the corporate grind of big pharma before discovering tourism. Thanks to 20 years of travel as a guide, tour leader, and trip designer, Jacqui can offer qualified recommendations to the finest destinations and informed insight on experiencing them. Jacqui has a passion for the natural environment and a genuine desire to blend information with experience. This keeps her returning to the road as a guide when not consulting, supporting, or making tea for Active Africans.
