After having been on more than 80 African adventure safaris, we have had few experiences as memorable as an Africa hiking safari.
And this is even more true when we have hiked in
Kruger, Mt. Kenya, Mana Pools or one of Africa’s other world famous national parks. You get stunningly close to rhinos, elephants, giraffes and even lions as you walk in these wilderness areas. And if you follow the rules and the directions of your ranger, it is safe.
Let me tell you, your perspective of wildlife is permanently changed after one of these experiences. You will never forget how large, beautiful and awe inspiring any of these animals are as you see them face to face.
And I might add, it is a totally different experience than viewing the animals either from a 4×4 or a canoe.
(Though I must say that seeing animals from a canoe, especially on the Zambezi, is another incomparably wonderful experience!)
As thrilling as it is, we have found our Africa hiking safaris quite safe. We’ve done them all with our young daughter (starting when she was only 8 years old). And they have been safe because we have always done them with armed rangers. Indeed you must do these Africa hiking safaris with a trained and armed guide (or two).
All of us always learn an amazing amount about both the animals and the ecology every time we take one of these family adventure vacations.

This is the way to enjoy the Transkei the area of South Africa that encompasses the Wild Coast.
The most accessible section is the five day hike from Port St Johns to Coffee Bay. The trail is tough with steep climbs over headlands and long beach sections.
You can do easier ones. My daughter and I did a similar hike when she was nine. She loved it and so did I. The added bonus was that we camped out in local African huts and got real insights into rural, traditional African tribal culture and life.
Set off from the very tip of the Africa and negotiate the slopes, plateaus and bluffs between the Indian and Atlantic oceans.
Indulge your senses! Delight in the warm, blue waters of the Indian Ocean as you hike but keep an eye out for Zambezi sharks in the estuary mouths.
If you get a chance to go, leap on it. Availability is always tight.
