Backpacking Safari (not backed up by a vehicle - walking in the Sinamatella area - usually 10 - 12 kms / day

This is the most scenic part of Hwange with numerous springs, including hot water ones, low hills, rugged kopjies, watercourses, water holes and mineral licks.
The attraction for backpacking this part of the park is the ability to overnight in specific places such as springs, water holes and mineral licks that we have only been able to visit by foot during the day.
Participants in a backpacking safari will need to provide their own backpacks, sleeping bags and mats; they need to be fit enough to backpack for 3 - 4 hours a day with a 7-10 kg pack as well as 2- 3 hours of unencumbered walking as day. Tentage and supplies will be provided by the safari company and will be of the best quality space and weight will allow.

Each safari will be led by a professional guide and a tracker and will be accompanied by a back up crew who will carry out all the camp chores, except erecting tents, and will do most of the heavy carrying.
