Africa on Foot specialises in walking safaris in the big five Klaserie Private Nature Reserve; a wildlife rich region in the heart of the Greater Kruger. The Klaserie shares unfenced borders with the Kruger National Park which means predators and other wildlife roam freely throughout.
On a walking safari guests will be led by experienced and professional trail guides through a wildlife area rich with game. In addition to walking safaris, game drives are offered, which allows guests to participate in a full spectrum of safari activities. The morning starts with a 2 – 3 hour walk, but if the conditions aren’t favourable, the walk is replaced with a game drive. There’s always a sundowner stop with evening game drives, and there are plenty of options for special occasions!
Africa on Foot Camp has 5 chalets ensuring an intimate and personal safari experience. For the more adventurous there is a treehouse which can be booked at an extra cost. On balmy summer days guests can relax at their choice of 2 splash pools and enjoy a traditional South African barbecue (braai) around the camp fire area in the boma.
Africa on Foot’s location is in a prime wildlife area. The Greater Kruger is a collection of private, unfenced nature reserves situated on the western border of the Kruger National Park. All game moves freely throughout the region, but the reserves in the Greater Kruger are private meaning that the guests get an unbeatable safari experience.
Africa on Foot has 5 chalets and a treehouse, which is an adventurous option for guests who want to spend a night in the wilderness.
Two of the chalets are family units, which have 2 adjoining bedrooms and room for 4 people in double and twin beds. Africa on Foot offers the ideal safari accommodation in the Kruger’s Klaserie because it offers an authentic experience. All rooms are of the same standard with ensuite bathrooms, mosquito nets, a clothing rack, bedside tables, solar powered lamps, and bathroom toiletries.
The electricity at Africa on Foot is solar-powered to keep things natural and eco-friendly. The power is switched off between 12pm and 4pm, so all charging of devices should be done before and after this period. Water is gas-heated.
One night during your stay, try sleeping out in the treehouse, which is located a few hundred metres from camp. A wooden structure reaching up into the trees with a game-viewing platform and a top deck with a bed and a view to be remembered. In summer it is warm and beautiful – perfect for fearless romantics!
Africa on Foot’s main area houses a comfortable lounge area constructed around an old tree trunk and equipped with couches and a library. The dining room has a large table where, as per safari tradition, everyone dines together to enjoy each other’s company and share stories of the day’s sightings.
An outside boma area and campfire is perfect for those cold winter mornings and nights. Guests generally enjoy evening drinks and a traditional South African braaivleis (barbecue) cooked over the open fire.
There are 2 swimming pools, one on the periphery of camp at the treehouse, and one in the centre of camp. The pool “inside” camp is perfect for families, and the pool close to the treehouse offers a sense of seclusion.
Africa’s most superb predators are found in the Klaserie and are frequently seen by guests on game drive. Knowing that there are all of Africa’s most successful predators around Africa on Foot, and knowing that it is unfenced, the feeling of being in the wild is ever-present.
Leopard and lion, Africa’s biggest cats, prowl the bushveld and their calls can be heard in the night when you are falling asleep. The lions are famous in the Klaserie and their pride has been followed for years. Other fantastic predators found here are the spotted hyena, black-backed jackal, side-striped jackal, caracal, crocodile, cheetah, serval, and African wild dog, to name but a few.
The camp is frequently visited by a pair of honey badgers, which is an exciting and eventful occasion. These are ferocious little creatures that are feared by most other big mammals in the wild because of their fearless attitude and tendancy to aim for the groin in an attack!
Africa on Foot is a unique camp offering professional guided walking safaris with qualified trail guides who’ve had intensive specialized training in approaching dangerous game. Walking safaris are 2-3 hours and begin with a comprehensive demonstration about how to behave when encountering wildlife.
In the evenings, guests are taken on game drive, which brings you a lot closer to big game. The night drives allow guests the opportunity to see the nocturnal animals not encountered during the day. When the sun sets, guides will always stop for sundowners!
