Africa on Foot specialises in Big Five safaris and walking safaris in the 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 game rangers through a wildlife area rich in game including lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, buffalo as well as hyena, hippo, giraffe, zebra and a whole host of other wildlife. In addition to walking safaris, Big 5 game drives and night drives are offered allowing guests to participate in a full spectrum of safari activities.
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 no extra cost. On balmy summer days guests can relax at the splash pool 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 is about an hour’s drive from the town of Hoedspruit, which is the supply capital of the Greater Kruger. Eastgate airport is the local airport for the camps in the Klaserie, which is about a 40 minute drive from camp.
Guests fly to Eastgate airport from Johannesburg, Cape Town or Durban, and are met by their host from Africa on Foot and driven the last distance to camp. This last leg is a drive through a Big 5 area, so keep your eyes peeled for early game-viewing.

Everyone loves a lion update! Here are the ladies of leisure, photographed taking a drink at a pan in the area after feasting on a kill; huge bellies on display as they lay panting next to the water. If you don't recognise them, these are the Ross pride breakaway females.
We are very pleased to announce that our team here at Africa on Foot has pulled off a nomination in not one, but THREE categories for the 2016 Safari Awards! http://www.safariawards.com/2016_nominees_country/index.php?CountryID=8 What an honour to be nominated alongside our sister camp nThambo Tree Camp in the categories of Best Value Safari and Best Guiding Team. We have also been nominated in the category of Best Walking Safari among only 5 other lodges. How wonderful to stand out as one of the best in the safari world we are so dedicated to. Look out for an upcoming blog post and the opportunity to vote for us for next year's Safari Awards.
Our guests enjoyed an unforgettable elephant sighting the other day when their morning walk turned into one very close encounter with Africa's largest land mammal. A herd of elephants were spotted about 300m away, and under ranger Greg's expert leadership, they managed to sit down and enjoy watching the elephants drink and play at the waterhole...getting as close as 3m!
Happy Friday everyone. This week we bring you a handselected gallery of wildlife images from the week. Rangers reported sightings of the Ross Pride females this morning. You'll probably find the Trilogy are not far from these females ! The elephant herds have been out and about, strutting their stuff and once again the Klaserie is buzzing with bird species. We're waiting for the Trilogy to come out of hiding - let's see what next week brings.
Our foreign friends like to refer to a braai as a barbecue. Techinically speaking, both verbs have the same literal definition. According to both Wikipedia and the Concise Oxford English dictionary, a braai is “to grill or roast (meat) over open coals”. But for a true South African, a braai is more than a mere method of cooking. It’s a South African tradition that spans across generations. Read our blog post to find out how to braai like a South African http://www.sundestinations.co.za/how-to-braai-like-a-south-african-part-1-fire-preparation/ #Safari #AfricaOnFoot #BushBraai
