Foot offers the ideal Kruger Park Safari Accommodation because it offers an
authentic experience. Below is the type of accommodation we offer.
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
(barbecue) 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.
To truly immerse yourself in the rustic bush experience, all Africa on Foot
chalets are equipped with lanterns while plug points in the main area can be
used to charge your camera batteries..
Africa on Foot is unique in the Kruger for offering proper walking safaris. Most
Kruger safari lodges only offer an optional walk after breakfast where the guide
normally assigns his tracker to take the guests on a gentle stroll in the lodge
vicinity. Africa on Foot focuses on proper two to four hour morning walking
safaris (depending on the level of fitness).
One of the main aims of going on safari is to go on a game drive. 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 Landcruisers. No roof allows you 360 degree
views, perfect for wonderful photographic and video opportunities. The afternoon
game drives generally leave at 4pm and stop for sundowners, and then continue
into the night drive on your way back to camp.
The night drives allow guests the opportunity to see the nocturnal animals not
encountered during the day. Your chances of seeing leopard in particular are a
lot higher at night and with a bit of luck you might even encounter the
predators such as lion and leopard hunting. During the night drives, your
tracker uses a powerful spotlight to search for nocturnal animals. Expect to see
a wide variety of animals not normally seen during the day, including leopards,
hyenas, aardvarks, bat-eared fox, porcupines, bush babies, bushbucks, mongoose,
genet cats and nocturnal birds like owls and nightjars.
