If you are looking for a greater Kruger area walking safari, or a holiday submerged in relaxation in the bush, consider joining Tomjachu Bush Retreat on a wildlife hike. The walking safaris are conducted in the greater Kruger area, in the Tomjachu Game Reserve, just outside of Nelspruit South Africa (45 minutes from the national park).
This is arguably one of the most relaxing countryside holidays, with the perfect mix of leisure, scenery, wildlife – creating timeless memories.
The hiking trails at Tomjachu Bush Retreat will leave you with a memorable experience for years to come. From the tough climb of Zebra Heights to the riverine walks along the Tipperary River and unspoilt thicket to an extraordinary ancient canyon with waterfalls and pools, there is a trail to suit any fitness level.
The guided walks range from basic level, to intrepid ‘off the beaten path’ hikes, where the ranger follows game paths to some of the more remote locations on the property – ‘off-road’ hiking if you like! We do not have the big 5, allowing you to walk freely amongst the stunning African wildlife in the open plains and enjoy the true beauty of Tomjachu Bush Retreat.
The walking trails are focussed on educating guests on the safari environment as a whole, including the insect and plant life, general game (giraffe, zebra and impalas) habitats of certain smaller animals as well as vegetation.
There is always a chance of encountering one of the larger animals on foot as well. On the property, Tomjachu Bush Retreat visitors can spot the following: Zebra, Giraffe, Wildebeest, Kudu, Ostrich, Bushbuck, Blesbok, Waterbuck, Nyala, Impala, Red Duiker, Common Duiker, Mountain Reedbuck, Klipspringer, Jackal, Warthog, Wild Pig, Porcupine, Honey Badger, Bushbaby, Genet, Civet, Vervet Monkey, Baboon and Cape Clawless Otter.
The best time to view game on your walking safari in South Africa, are the early hours of the morning and during the late afternoon. This is when most game is active during the heat of the day, many animals tend to seek shade and are less active.
There is no better place to learn the unseen secrets of the bush than on one of our guided walks with our game ranger. Open your eyes to the wonderful world of the African bushveld.
