Walking Safaris, Africa

Jeep tours are great, but real safari aficionados swear by walking safaris. Several African outfitters offer this novel way of experiencing the flora and fauna of sub-Saharan Africa up close. Micato, for instance, offers a 15-day Private Invitation safari that includes visits to several boutique properties like Campi Ya Kanzi, in the Chyulu Hills of Kenya, where founder Luca Belpietro leads walking tours to spot lions. At Tanzania's Dunia camp, which is situated between the prime wildlife areas of the central and southern Serengeti, guests can spot big cats of all kinds, including rarely seen leopards. If you’d rather someone else did the walking for you, Micato also offers a new Elephant Back South Africa Sojourn that includes stays at Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve and game viewing atop elephants at Shambala Private Game Reserve—two areas known for their proliferation of big cats. —Emma Sloley
