The Best Safari Boots For Bush Walks Reviewed

A good safari boot is the one thing that is a must when it comes to safari wear and bushwalks. Sure you can dress up in khaki, leather, leopard print, and dark green, but at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter all that much about what you wear on safari if you don’t have the safari shoe.

However, protecting your feet in the bush is important. 

If your safari has plans to do any bush walks in search of the “Big Five” and other safari animals, picking up a good pair of boots before your trip is a necessity. A good pair of safari boots is not just comfort; they are safe for being in the bush.

Danner Mountain 600

Danner Mountain 600
  • Price: $180
  • Weight: 2 lbs 5 oz
  • Material: Suede Leather
  • Waterproof: Yes

Pros

  • Style
  • Leather Upper
  • Comfort
  • Vibram Soles
  • Lightweight
  • Weatherproof

Cons

  • Narrow Footbeds
  • Lacks Ventilation

If it’s looking like you might need something a little heavier than the standard shoe, then take a close look at the Danner Mountain 600 Boot. Danner has been building boots since 1932, and in that time they crafted some of the footwear for the U.S. Marine Corps, so you can bet they know what they’re doing.

The Mountain 600 is a perfect balance between performance and aesthetics. You’ll have a rugged boot that can take anything you throw at it, but appear like you’re wearing stylish classic safari boots. A solid addition to any Africa packing list.

They are waterproof and feature a comfortable, shock-absorbing midsole, perfect for a few trail adventures during the day, then heading back into the city for the evening. The more rugged construction also means a longer break-in period, so wear them around at home before you take off.

Blundstone BL585

Blundstone BL585 Mens Travel Boots
  • Price: $199
  • Material: Leather
  • Waterproof: Yes

Pros

  • Iconic Style
  • Comfort
  • Durability
  • Easy Slip-On
  • Thick Rubber Soles
  • Steel Shank Insoles
  • Super Durable Heat Resistant Sole

Cons

  • Not Technical
  • Lacks Ventilation

For a stylish men’s safari boot, these are a solid go-to for travel. The BL585 has great tread, insoles, and strong arch support which makes much more than a stylish boot for men. Not only can these boots feel comfortable in a more formal or stylish event, but they’re equally at home on a ranch or going for a walk in the woods. An EVA footbed with special technology in the heels ensures all-day comfort.

The boots are made of thick, soft leather, durable stitching, and they’re incredibly comfortable. I love the slip-on fit, and the pull tabs make it easy to put on and take off. As a tip, I’d pick up some leather treatment to protect the boot and add a level of water resistance. Altogether they’re a tremendous safari boot for men.

Salomon X Ultra 3 Mid GTX

Best Hiking Boot Salomon GTX III
  • Price: $165
  • Weight: 1 lb 15 oz.
  • Material: Leather/ GoreTex
  • Waterproof: Yes

Pros

  • Ultralight
  • Great Performance For Hiking
  • An Attractive Performance Style
  • Quality Construction
  • Flexible
  • Comfortable
  • GoreTex Liner
  • Excellent Value For Quality

Cons

  • Not Safari Style

Salomon has been at the top of the hiking footwear game for a long time. With exceptional quality, outstanding durability, and solid overall construction, it’s easy to see why. Now they have entered their contender in the lightweight hiking boots fight, and we couldn’t be happier. These are an excellent pair of boots, but more about hiking than safari.

It’s a good boot for anyone looking to have a lightweight boot without sacrificing performance. If you’re seeking a boot to move fast and run downhill with some ankle protection this is a great hiking boot. These boots can easily tackle the challenges of the hardest safari, but might not be the most fashion-forward and a little overkill. That being said they’re a great value for the quality.

Merrell Men’s Moab 2

Best Travel Boots - Merrel Moabs
  • Price: $130
  • Weight: 2 lbs 4 oz.
  • Material: Suede leather/Mesh
  • Waterproof: Yes

Pros

  • Very Comfortable
  • Technical Use
  • Versatile Boot
  • Reliable Fit
  • No Break-In Period
  • Functional
  • Ventilation

Cons

  • Not Stylish
  • Jack of All Trades

Moabs are Merrell’s best-selling boot and the fairly attractive boot is uber comfortable right out of the box. Merrell specializes in hiking shoes so you know your feet will be comfortable for walking long distances. The boots are a blend of leather, textile, and synthetic. They are waterproof, comfortable, rubber soles, and high ankles.

The soles themselves are specially designed to grip so in muddy or wet conditions they grip. It’s unlikely you’ll ever go for a bushwalk in rainy conditions. I would suggest these boots for someone going gorilla trekking in the jungle or if you’re an avid hiker. We started off this list with your typical “safari boots” that are leather and stylish. These are more about practicality and value.

I’ve owned several pairs of Moabs over the years and they’re a great boot. However, the primary issue is they do not really excel at anything. The soles are a little soft so they are comfortable off the bat, but not great for technical hiking or work. Then the boot is not all that appealing style-wise.

Red Wing is one of the boot brands and handcrafted in the USA. These boots are both functional and stylish. Designed with quality materials and solid craftsmanship. Red Wing’s Heritage Iron Rangers have a high ankle and steel toe for great protection beyond the bush.

If I were considering a serious self-drive safari into the deep bush, I’d go for a pair of steel toe boots. What I love about these boots is that they are some of the best damn boots in terms of style, quality, comfort, and longevity. You can’t go wrong with a classic. Now all you need is a hat and a good camera for safari.

  • Waterproof: No

Pros

  • Value
  • Comfortable
  • Decent Grip
  • Hiking Boot
  • Attractive Color Options

Cons

  • Cheap PU Leather

Not all boots are about style. These Columbia boots are about practicality and comfort. The Newton Ridge Plus is a blend of leather and synthetic materials good for breathability and slight waterproofing.

Synthetic safari boots may not have the classic look, but they weigh less and have more flexibility than the more expensive leather boots. In fact, most safari guides these days opt for the new style of boots due to their practicality and comfort. With a low price point, these boots are a clear winner.

Salomon Quest 4d boots can take you from your day-hike to your next big backwoods adventure with ease, making them great for every style and experience level. Above all these are just great boots for hiking and have a shelf life long beyond a safari.

Lowa Renegade GTX

Lowa Renegade GTX Boot
  • Price: $240
  • Weight: 2 lbs. 7 oz.
  • Material: Nubuck Leather
  • Waterproof: Yes

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Comfortable
  • Solid Support
  • Stiff Sole
  • Nice Leather Style and Look

Cons

  • Longevitiy Issues Report

Similar to the Vasque Breeze, the Lowa Renegade hiking boots are extremely comfortable straight out of the box, with no break-in period needed. The Lowa also has one of the highest ankle collars of any of the boots on this list, giving you exceptional ankle support for uneven terrain.

They have a solid construction that can stand up against the best brands, and a full leather upper that only adds to their overall durability. Lowa Renegade hiking boots have more stability, durability, and waterproofing than many lightweight brands, but fall slightly behind the endurance of many midweight boots.

Vasque Talus Trek Mid UltraDry

Vasque-Talus-Trek-Best-Hiking-Boot
  • Price: $210
  • Weight: 2 lbs. 5 oz.
  • Material: Leather/Synthetic Mesh
  • Waterproof: Yes

Pros

  • Durability
  • Blend of Style/Technical
  • Stiff Toe
  • Tough Vibram Sole
  • Comfortable
  • Quality
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Short Break-In Period
  • Technical Hiking Boot

If you are planning on setting out on exceptionally rocky and wet terrain, look no further than the Vasque Talus Trek Mid UltraDry hiking boots. Designed specifically for long days hiking, these boots hold up through the mud, rain, rocks, and even snow. So, they make for a great safari boot.

They are slightly heavier than the lightest of boots, weighing in at 2lbs 8oz, but have not fully moved into the midweight category. The added weight comes from the comfortable leather exterior, and rugged foot protection, which we think are definitely worth the trade. These boots come in both men’s and women’s sizes, and a variety of colors depending on your style preference.

The Pascal Combat Boot has been a fashion staple for decades now. Combined with both a classic combat boot look, solid design, and comfort these boots are great for a bushwalk. A large selection of styles and colors ensure you can choose whatever suits your mood.

After all, women’s safari clothes do not need to be all khaki and leather. The long history and great build quality mean the boots should also hold up against the elements. I wouldn’t recommend them for a hard adventurer, but they’re more than enough for the average safari.

Safari Boot Tips

Best Safari Vests

Keep Your Boots Dry

This is the age-old boot tip, but keep your boots dry and change your socks often. Most people won’t face these challenges on safari. However, keeping dry feet while chimp or gorilla trekking in Uganda, the DRC, and Rwanda will certainly prove to be a challenge. A great pair of socks is always your first line of defense in protecting your feet. Check these out for a good pair.


Leather Care

If you’re going with some of the more expensive boots on this list like the Red Wings or Chippewas I suggest taking care of the leather. With boots like these, they can literally last a lifetime if maintained. The soles can be replaced when they eventually wear.

However, the leather must be protected against the elements this is why I use a leather sealant and conditioner. Like Obenaufs, which you can buy it here.


Get the Right Size

It’s a good idea to know the proper sizing of your foot. Measure the length, width, and arch length at home or head into a local store to make sure you have the right sized boot.

Once you get your boots you can double-check the size of your insole by removing it from the shoe and comparing to your foot — you should have a thumb’s width between your longest toes and the end of the insole.


Tips For Africa


Plan A Safari

African Safari

Traditionally if you wanted to book a safari you’d have to go to a travel agent and have them book your safari for you. They made suggestions for camps and lodges then presented you with a large bill. Most of the industry still operates in this fashion.

However, Timbuktu is a new platform that allows you to select the lodges you’d like and see the pricing per day that way you can select the best itinerary for yourself. They will then contact the lodges and help you through booking your safari. With experts on staff, they can also provide suggestions and arrange the little details much like a travel agent.


Our Favorite Lodges in Africa

Bwindi Lodge

We’ve spent over a year on safari and tried out dozens of lodges and have visited nearly every park in Africa. While it’s impossible to say we’ve visited every lodge we’ve seen a fair amount. Check out our list of favorite lodges in Africa. Have you visited any yourself?

Plan Your Trip to Africa

  • Travel Insurance: We don’t travel without travel insurance and neither should you. You never know what can happen while traveling so it’s best to be prepared. World Nomads provides good short term coverage
  • Travel Waterbottle: When we’re uncertain about the water supply we use our Grayl Purifier. It’s come in exceptionally handy around Africa.
  • Camera Gear: Chances are you’ll want a camera for your trip to Africa. We love the Sony RX100V for a pocket-size camera and the Fujifilm XT-3 for a professional camera. Check out our favorite cameras for Africa.
  • Safari Clothes: Lightweight, beige, and moisture-wicking clothing are great for traveling Africa. See our favorite safari clothing here.
  • Safari Hat: A good hat is both stylish and functional.
  • Safari Bag: A durable bag is ideal for traveling around Africa.
  • Safari Pants: We recommend neutral-colored pants as they’re great at hiding dirt and can match most shirt colors.
  • Safari Shirt: Shirts like these are lightweight and keep the bugs away!
  • Boots: While you don’t need to wear sturdy shoes everyday, at least one pair of safari boots will make your trip nicer!
  • Travel Adapter: You’ll need a special travel adapter for traveling Africa. Get one before you get there so you don’t pay a premium on the ground.

  1. Does the color of the boot matter when going on bush walks? Generally I’ve read that tsetse flies are attracted to black and blue, but I wanted to see if this impacts footwear too.

  2. Yes, tsetse flies are attracted to blue. I’d probably try to avoid the color, but doubt your safari boot color would matter too much. Also, keep in mind that many regions for safari do not have tsetse flies so it may not matter.
