16 Mar Discovering nature with guided walks on the Big 5 Nambiti Game Reserve
Get a full sensory nature experience when you take part in a guided nature walk at one of the Lodges in Nambiti Private Game Reserve. Be entertained by learning about the smaller details and overlooked aspects of the natural world around you. By taking a guided nature walk, you are not bound by roads but can find out what it is like for wildlife to walk along paths and riverbeds during your experience.
Taking a walk like this with a guide will introduce you and let you focus on your immediate environment. You can learn about tracking wildlife as well as be introduced to the smaller game and life in the reserve in detail. Connect with the bush as you experience the sunlight glinting off the dew on a web, the smells of different botanicals as you brush by them, the crunch of the grass as you walk and the sounds of the bush as wildlife would hear it.
The qualified experienced guides will share their extensive knowledge of all you encounter, possibly including the little five (elephant shrew, ant lion, rhinoceros beetle, buffalo weaver and the leopard tortoise), the ugly five (Hyena, Marabou Stork, Vulture, Warthog and Wildebeest) and the Big Five.
You can revel in finding out how the pecking order works in nature, as well as one’s place in the natural cycle of life. Learn about the bugs, beetles, butterflies, spiders, plants, buck, cats, elephants and more. Find out about why the bush goes quiet sometimes, and why other times you can hear it teeming with life.
You will be guided at a safe distance that is not threatening to the wildlife and learn how life is for them in the reserve.
If you are interested in taking part in one of these walks, you should pack a lightweight hat, comfortable walking shoes and neutral-coloured clothing like khaki, beige or brown and speak to the Lodge you are staying at, who can advise you of the costs and availability for this special experience.
