AFRICA ON FOOT
Big five safaris and walking safaris in the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve
A wildlife rich region in the heart of the Greater Kruger

Africa on Foot specialises in big five safaris and walking safaris in the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve; a wildlife rich region in the heart of the Greater Kruger. The Klaserie shares unfenced borders with the Kruger National Park, which means predators and other wildlife roam freely throughout. On a walking safari guests will be led by experienced and professional trails guides through an area abundant with wildlife. Walks offer a unique perspective and insight into the bushveld, and plenty of knowledge is gained while at ground level with marauding predators and giant herbivores. On foot you will learn about the medicinal and practical uses of plants; and exchange stories about the wild.

Morning’s start with a 3 hour slow paced walk through the savannah (weather permitting), where you will track and try to find big game. In addition to walking safaris, evening game drives take place. This allows guests to participate in a full spectrum of safari activities and track big five.


Africa on Foot camp has 5 chalets ensuring an intimate and personal safari experience. For the more adventurous there is a treehouse, which can be booked prior to arrival. The treehouse is an extra cost, which is payable at camp.

Two of the chalets are family units, which have 2 adjoining bedrooms and room for 4 people in double and twin beds. Africa on Foot offers the ideal safari accommodation in the Kruger’s Klaserie because it offers an authentic experience. All rooms are of the same standard with ensuite bathrooms, mosquito nets, a clothing rack, bedside tables, solar powered lamps, and bathroom toiletries.

The electricity at Africa on Foot is solar-powered to keep things natural and eco-friendly. The power is switched off between 12pm and 4pm, so all charging of devices should be done before and after this period. Water is gas-heated.

One night during your stay, try sleeping out in the treehouse, which is located a few hundred metres from camp. A wooden structure reaching up into the trees with a game-viewing platform and a top deck with a bed and a view to be remembered. An outside bathroom and shower makes your stay extra comfy. It sleeps a maximum of two guests. In summer it is warm and beautiful – perfect for fearless romantics!

Africa on Foot thrives on offering special occasion setups, one of which is the BushBar. For honeymooners or guests wanting to add a slice of romance to their stay, the team will arrange a honeymoon sundowner set-up at an extra cost.

On balmy summer days guests can relax at their choice of two splash pools – one sits adjacent to the treehouse on the perimeter of camp, and the other pool is inside the camp. Both pools are a major drawcard for elephants, so don’t be surprised if you spot a few giants during peak safari season!

The bar, boma and dining area provide a relaxed are for guests to swap stories about their day in the Klaserie. Africa on Foot truly is a friendly, comfortable and “real” safari camp offering good food, a warm atmosphere and unsurpassed game viewing opportunities.

During the dry season the vegetation is sparse and wildlife congregates around watering holes. During the wet season the vegetation is dense and wildlife is more dispersed. Expect to see the Big Five over the course of a 2-3 night stay. There are two resident prides that traverse the Africa on Foot area – the Ross and Giraffe pride. In addition to the Big Five animals that are regularly sighted include giraffe, zebra, warthog, spotted hyena, baboon, hippo, impala, kudu, vervet monkey, waterbuck, wildebeest, bushbaby, mongoose, duiker and steenbok. You might also see wild dog, cheetah, honey badger, porcupine, aardvark, civet, caracal and serval. Birds that are regularly seen are vultures, owls, bee- eaters, rollers,
eagles, bustards, hornbills, starlings and shrikes.

Game Drive Vehicles 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! All game drives are conducted in open 4 x 4 Toyota Land Cruisers or Landrovers.

CHILDREN POLICY
Children from age 5 years and over are accepted. The age limit on walking safaris is 16 years. Children between the ages of 5 and 16 years will be taken on morning game “bumbles” or drives (depending on their age) while their parents enjoy their morning walking safaris.

Should the guides feel that children are not well behaved, their parents will be asked to accompany them on the game drives.
