    - Bushwalk and Baobab climbing.
Bushwalking – Surrounding Wildtracks there are trails meandering through the riverine forest and mopane woodland. Walks of varying distance can be done and are fun for the whole family.

Baobab tree climbing – By far the most popular and unique activity at Wildtracks, the Baobab tree climb is a great morning activity and quite a challenge.

Using ropes, harnesses and helmets, this one is not to be missed and not something one can do at any other lodge.
