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 game 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.
The camp is unfenced and 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 pool, but always be aware that any number of the Big 5 could be close by.
The Greater Kruger area can get very hot in summer and thankfully the camp has a beautiful splash pool complete with decking and deck chairs. Often, elephants come to the pool and stick their trunks into the water to drink.
There is wireless internet connection at Africa on Foot to keep guests connected to the outside world, but to truly immerse yourself in the rustic bush experience, the camp is run on solar power and there are ambient lanterns decorating camp.
Plug points in the main area can be used to charge your camera batteries. There are fans in each of the rooms. Beds have mosquito nets. There is a bar onsite complete with local beers, wine, soft drinks and spirits.
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.

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.

Flying from Johannesburg or Cape Town to Hoedspruit Eastgate Airport is the quickest and easiest option for getting to Africa on Foot.
