Africa on Foot is a unique camp in the Kruger that offers professional guided walking safaris with qualified trail guides. Each Walking Safari lasts about from 2-3 hours and begins with a comprehensive demonstration on how to behave when encountering animals. All Walking Safaris are led by qualified rangers who have had intensive specialized training in approaching dangerous game.
In the evenings, guests are taken on game drive, which brings you a lot closer to big game. The animals are habituated to the vehicle, which 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 larger predators; even while they're feasting on a recent kill.
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.
During summer, an early wake-up at 05h00 starts the day (while winter is later at 05h45). It gets very hot and guides like to bring guests back to camp before 9am while it is still cool. Walks take between 2 and 3 hours and are followed by a hearty breakfast at the dining table.
Between 11h00 and 14h30 guests have time to themselves. Relax with a book, take a nap with the sounds of the local birdlife, have a dip in the pool and catch a tan in the sun. At 14h30 lunch is served, consisting of salads, cheese, cold meat and a light quiche or pie.
Game drive begins at 15h30 and traverses this exceptional area of the Klaserie. At the time the sun sets, guides take their guests to a spot where they can snack on biltong, nuts and chips, while sipping on something cold. Return to the lodge by 19h30 and freshen up before dinner at about 08h30.View 4 Day Walk On The Wild Side Safari itinerary.
