Having been in the safari industry for several years, I have had the privilege of taking part in several safaris and heading out on numerous walks. I absolutely love a walking safari – not only does it allow you to stretch your legs, but it also gives you the chance to explore the area you are in from a different perspective. You catch things that you completely miss in a vehicle and you learn all about how the little things in an eco-system can play some of the most important roles in said environment!
For example, I had heard all about the termites and the important role they play within the eco-system. Whilst it is important to learn all about these things, after hearing about termites for the umpteenth time, I was desperate to head out on an interpretive and exciting walking experience.
Luckily for me, and to the envy of many of my colleagues, I had the unique opportunity of spending a night at Mapazi Camp, which is owner-run and -managed by the walking legend herself, Deb Tittle, a household name in the South Luangwa.
