About Africa on Foot
Experience a Kruger Walking Safari with Africa on Foot. The Klaserie Private Nature Reserve is part of the Greater Kruger Park and shares unfenced borders with the Kruger National Park. It is here that guests can take part in incredible walking safaris.
Africa on Foot Camp has five chalets and a tree house where more adventurous guests can sleep under the stars. Two of the chalets are family units. All chalets have mosquito nets, as well as a solar-powered mist fan and solar-powered light. The camp facilities include a main area which houses a comfortable lounge area with two sitting areas 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.
There is also a boma area with camp fire, perfect for warming you up with your coffee before the morning walk, or for enjoying evening drinks around the fire. In addition guests will experience a traditional South African braaivleis cooked over the open fire. The Greater Kruger area can get very hot in summer and thankfully the camp has a beautiful pool with decking area where guests can relax and siesta during the midday heat between game activities.
Africa on Foot is unique in the Kruger for offering proper walking safaris as well as game drives. Each Walking Safari begins with a comprehensive demonstration on how to behave when encountering animals and are led by qualified rangers who have had intensive specialized training in approaching dangerous game.
In addition to allowing you to view the larger mammals on foot, the rangers will give you an insight into the bush that will surprise you. On game drives you are able to get a lot closer to big game. The animals are generally habituated to the vehicle. This means that they are used to the vehicle approaching them and know that it never causes them harm. This enables to you to get within five to 10 metres of the large animals - and safely!
