Africa on Foot is a rustic camp comprising 5 authentic thatched chalets surrounding an open lounge and bar area. There is a treehouse for the adventurous, and 2 splash pools.

About the camp

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. 

At night it is asked that guests do not walk around camp without a guide. During the day it is safe to walk between your room, the main area, and the swimming pools.

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 Hoedspruit/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 five area, so keep your eyes peeled for early game-viewing.

Getting There

South Africa is a beautiful country to see and a self-drive option is recommended for guests who have the time and interest for a more diverse experience.

The drive from Johannesburg takes about 6 hours according to directions that will be provided for you. The roads are good and safe, while the scenery in the Mpumalanga/Limpopo region is spectacular.

Flying from Johannesburg or Cape Town to Hoedspruit Eastgate Airport is the quickest and easiest option for getting to Africa on Foot. Hoedspruit receives guests travelling to the Greater Kruger every day. Your host from Africa on Foot will meet you at the airport and drive you through the Timbavati Gate and then into the Klaserie and to Africa on Foot.

Road transfers are another option for guests travelling to Africa on Foot. The Ashton’s Transfer takes guests to the Bush Pub & Grill just outside the Timbavati Gate, which is where Africa on Foot hosts will meet their guests and drive them the last 30 minutes to the camp.
