I did 2 at Rhino Post which I won't recount here as they were slightly different to the KNP ones (brilliant though!!!).
We did two with Sanparks guides, one at Olifants and one at Shingwedzi.
At Olifants we were driven along the dirt road towards the (S92) back to the main road at 05HDARK
We stopped about 4 or 5 k's back towards Satara and pulled about 100m into the bush.
There were a mating pair of lions about 200m from where we stopped so we sat in the vehicle and listened to them for a while.
Once we got out they bolted.
The walk itself meandered back towards Olifants up a hill and round over a small river.
These walks are not tough and there are a few stops where the guides will explain things.
We saw giraffe who pretty much just stood and watched us.
About 2 hours into the walk you stop and have a break which consisted of crackers, biltong, cheese and juice boxes.
You also get the chance to use one of Elzets bush toilets
On the way back we saw the lions again - haring off into the distance.
They do seem to have a very extended "comfort" zone - maybe that had to do with the fact that they were mating.
You wander back to the vehicles having done a "circle".
Shingwedzi was not as far a drive but pretty much followed the same format.
The difference was that we were taken down to the river and walked along for a bit looking at hippos and crocs.
We came out near the big bush lapa (can't remember the name of it) and then tramped back along the road to the vehicle.
The walks go out early and in winter even up north you need to be reasonably rugged up.
At Shingwedzi even though we were there for a week we only got 1 walk as they were short of guides.
My SO has a weak leg and sometimes can struggle when we are out bush walking, but she had no problems on the 4 walks we did.
I will say that we are both regular bush walkers but no-one else really struggled except an American lady at Rhino Post.
We have pre-booked all our walks this time taking a couple of days between each and are doing a total of 8 walks (Hopefully
) between 27 July and 13 August.
Hope this is what you were after B5S?
