  • Best time to travel

    As with most game viewing destinations, the best game viewing is normally done in the winter months.  The bush is dry and game is easier to spot as they tend to stay close to available water sources.  The summer rainfall generally occurs from November to April resulting in the wildlife spreading out and becoming more difficult to spot.  However the rich bird life and lush landscapes make for a rewarding experience nonetheless.

Africa on Foot specialises in adrenalin filled Big 5 walking safaris in the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, the heart of the Greater Kruger area.  The region is rich in game as it shares an unfenced border with the renowned Kruger National Park.  Predators and other wildlife roam freely.  Experience the thrill of being led by experienced game rangers through the Reserve which is home to lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo.  Learn the finer skills of identifying tracks and the tell tale signs that various species leave behind.  A walking safari engages all the senses and fosters a deep love and appreciation of Africa’s wildlife.

Rooms

Small and intimate, Africa on foot only has 5 chalets and a tree house (an adventurous option for those that want to spend a night out in the wilderness).  Each of the chalets are individually located in an unfenced camp area.  Enjoy the luxury of an indoor and outdoor shower. Mosquito nets, en suite facilities and solar powered lamps ensure that basic comforts are taken care of.  Fearless romantics should book a sleep out in the famous tree house.  It’s located a few hundred meters away from the camp and consists of a wooden structure reaching up into the trees with a game viewing platform and top deck with a bed and view to remember.

Dining

As per safari tradition, everyone dines together to share stories of the day’s game sightings and experiences.  Or gather in the outside boma area and camp fire to enjoy the star filled skies and more bush tales.  Meals are hearty, traditional safari fare cooked over the open fire and complimented by fresh ingredients.

Activities

Each walking safari begins with a comprehensive demonstration on how to behave when encountering animals.  The walks are lead by qualified rangers who have undergone intensive training in approaching game.  The walking safaris normally last between 2 – 3 hours.  In the evenings a game drive is done which allows for getting into close proximity of big game.  Guests will also have the opportunity to see the nocturnal animals that are not encountered during the day and chances of seeing leopard are also a lot better at night.

What we think of it

An adrenalin filled safari for the adventurous at heart!
