Dubbed the pioneer of the Kruger walking safari, Africa on Foot rose to fame because of its combination safari experience. Since inception, the camp remains an iconic and intimate hideaway in the heart of the Big 5 Klaserie Private Nature Reserve. Both the general camp area and accommodation provide all of the creature comforts from home, maintaining a simple level of lodgings for relaxed safari-goers who don’t need the frills and spills of a high-end lodge. Africa on Foot is an eco-friendly lodge.
5 thatched chalets (2 of which are family chalets) joined by well-maintained pathways circle an intimate main area comprising a bar, seating area, dining section and boma. The main bar and chill out lounge area is built around an old tree trunk, giving it an authentic bushveld feel. There is a small splash pool on a raised wooden platform in the camp, which is regularly visited by elephants during the dry season. This pool is ideal for families because it’s close to the rooms.
Set just outside the entrance to camp is a multi-level lofty treehouse that can be booked in conjunction with your stay - it’s ideal for romantic adventurers. Next to the treehouse is a second, more secluded swimming pool that is a favorite spot for sundowner sessions.
Dinner takes place around a long safari table sandwiched between the bar/lounge area and outdoor boma. On safari, guests can expect to dine together in a traditional safari style. In the centre of the boma area is a roaring fire that creates a warm and welcoming space for those moments between game drives.
