Visited in 2014 and was impressed....so impressed that I returned in 2015. My hope/expectation was my 2015 experience would be just as good as in 2014. It was better! Well run operations - super people including owners, guides, trackers, and other service providers! Owner's, guide's, and tracker's passion for wildlife is impressive! Thank you very much for another great time....I'll... More

I've never been on a safari before so I don't have anything to compare with, but the three days I spent at AOF were just extraordinary. The camp itself is perfect - beautiful, clean, friendly, and with food enough to make me wonder briefly whether I was being fattened up for the lions. Our guide Mike was funny, immensely knowledgeable... More

Made welcome from arrival drink to departure. Staff made the difference. Excellent meals. Mike was enthusiastic knowledgeable guide on big 5 and smaller millipedes, chameleon, and plantife. Rooms good, hot water, power, bed comfy. Lots of animals including sitting down while elephants walked on both sides of us. Evening drives including sundowner drink were great. Walk in morning and drive... More

The camp is luxurious in a rustic kind of way. Our hut was perfect, we loved the outdoor shower and really appreciated the staff's hard work in putting our mosquito up and down every evening and morning and leaving tasy nougat on the pillow! One morning we awoke to find rhino dung on the step outside of our hut. We... More

Everything about Africa on Foot is outstanding. It is a more rustic safari experience than many lodges, but that is what makes it so great. The staff feels like family. Mealtimes are around a large dining table with the small group of guests (there were only 5 others besides my husband and myself) and staff members, including the guide and... More

We stayed here with our 3 children (10,7,5) and it was an incredible experience. The guides Patrick and Enoch were so welcoming and full of knowledge. Our rooms were beautifully made everyday and the food was always scrumptious and plentiful. The staff were all so fantastic with our children and taught us so much about the animals and the native...

I’ve been on more safaris than most, but this was my first time to Africa on Foot in the Klaserie Reserve, north of Sabi Sands and west of Timbavati. I enjoyed a wonderful walk through the wilderness with tracker Enoch Ngwenya and our ranger Mike Beard, a Keanu Reeves lookalike, only way more rugged. I know who I'd rather be... More

Africa on foot is a lodge that kind of like in the middle of nowhere. We drove to the camp by ourselves (a pick up at the park entrance is possible). That was kind of an adventure, because you have to go there on the same dirt roads you are on your safari trips! The place is very nice and... More

Our first time at AOF.....a 'true' safari experience. We have been on other safaris, but nothing like this. Our first morning game drive turned out to be a little more than we anticipated! We were on our way back from seeing 2 lionesses and cubs when we spotted a leopard. While in pursuit, the leopard suddenly lunged out of the... More
