AFRICA ON FOOT

Africa on Foot Lodge is a charming safari retreat situated within the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, part of the Greater Kruger National Park in South Africa. This lodge embodies the essence of a classic African bush experience, offering guests a blend of comfort and immersion in the wilderness.

Accommodations at Africa on Foot Lodge are simple yet cozy, with traditional thatched roofs and earthy tones that seamlessly blend into the natural surroundings. Guests typically stay in comfortable chalets or safari tents, equipped with basic amenities including comfortable beds, en-suite bathrooms, and outdoor showers. While the accommodations may not boast luxurious extravagance, they provide a rustic charm that complements the authentic safari experience.

The lodge’s primary focus is on guided game drives and walking safaris, led by experienced and knowledgeable local guides.

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 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.

 

Walking Safaris

Africa On Foot is a unique camp offering professional guided walking safaris with qualified trail guides who have experience in approaching wildlife. Walking safaris are 2-3 hours and begin with a safety briefing about bushveld etiquette and how to behave when encountering wildlife. If there are unsuitable weather conditions, a game drive will take place instead of a morning walk.

Game Drives with Sundowners

In the evenings, guests are taken on game drive, which brings you a lot closer to big game. The night drives also allow guests the opportunity to see the nocturnal animals not encountered during the day.
