Media Release: Walk About In Kruger National Park

Date: 3rd February 2000

Come and explore the African bush on foot, and learn about the big and the small. At last! Day Walks are available in Kruger National Park from the following camps: Pretoriuskop, Skukuza, Orpen, Letaba and Mopani. Further development of walks is underway and by the end of 2000, walks will be offered from almost every camp in the KNP.

Bookings are made at our central reservations offices in Pretoria. This activity is very popular, so please do not wait and avoid disappointment. Bookings can also be made at the camps, but only three days before the walk. 

The price per walk is R140,00. This includes a light snack and water bottles and a small backpack is provided to make carrying these easier. Two, well qualified armed Field Guides will accompany you on a 3 to 4 hour walk. These are not regimented route marches through the bush, but highly enlightening and interpretive walks. Indemnity forms are completed prior to the walk; your Field Guide will spend a few minutes with you, giving a pre-trail briefconcerning safety and general guiding ethic before departure. No children under 12 will be permitted. 

These Day Walks are taken in unexplored areas and are in a radius of about 20 km around the different camps. All of the big 5 occur there and other aspects of the diverse system are pointed out. The following items (of a personal nature) must be brought along by the participants: 

  • Walking shoes (no open sandals or rocky type shoes) 
  • Hat 
  • Sunscreen 
  • Insect repellent 
  • Natural coloured clothing 
  • Binoculars; and 
  • A camera, that is easily portable 

Bookings can be made at (012) 343-1991. See you in the bush!
