Welcome to Gary Freeman Safaris 

 "To be on foot in areas where Elephant, Buffalo and Lion roam freely is an experience that will never be forgotten. Following fresh tracks in the early morning gives a feeling of expectation that only the bushveld can generate."

Gary Freeman Safaris was established in 1993 and is aimed specifically at people - from both South Africa and abroad - who are interested in wilderness walking trails.

These trails are conducted in southern African game reserves where big game is free to roam and where bird watching is always exciting and an important part of the experience.

The trails were started in the early 1970's by Clive Walker and were successfully run under the auspices of the Wilderness Trust of Southern Africa until 1993. During this year, the Klaserie Lowveld Trails camp was taken over and the trails continued to operate under Gary Freeman Safaris.

Twenty-eight years later, the trails - especially the Klaserie Lowveld Trail - are still very popular with regular clients returning to enjoy the exhilaration that only the African bushveld can offer.

The objective of the trail is to expose the trailists to the game reserve environment, looking at all aspects, both large and small. Time is spent unravelling the intricacies of the bush and admiring many of the smaller species that would otherwise be overlooked if traveling in a vehicle. Walks are designed around the group requirements and the physical capability of the group.  

Personal packages are also available and will require at least 14 days allowing the visitor to enjoy Botswana and Namibia as a self-drive option. .

Gary Freeman was employed by the Wilderness Trust of SA and Clive Walker Trails, firstly at Lapalala Wilderness School, involved in environmental education from 1987 and then conducting trails in South Africa and to Mashatu Game Reserve and the Okavango Delta in Botswana until 1993. Gary Freeman still guides most of trails as well as the Southern African overland trips.
