Experience a Kruger walking safari with Africa on Foot Camp. The Klaserie Game Reserve is part of the Greater Kruger Park and shares unfenced borders with the Kruger National Park. It is here that guests can take part in incredible walking safaris.
On a walking safari guests will be led by experienced and professional game rangers through a wildlife area rich in game including lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, buffalo as well as hyena, hippo, giraffe, zebra and a whole host of other wildlife. In addition to walking safaris, morning game drives and night drives are also offered allowing guests to participate in a full spectrum of safari activities.
The camp facilities include a main area which houses a comfortable lounge area with 2 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. The boma area with its camp fire is perfect for warming you up with your coffee before the morning walk, or for enjoying evening drinks around the fire.
The Greater Kruger area can get very hot in summer and thankfully the camp has a small pool with decking area where guests can relax and siesta during the midday heat between game activities.
Africa on Foot Camp has 5 chalets (2 of which are family units), ensuring an intimate and personal safari experience. To truly immerse yourself in the rustic bush experience, all chalets are equipped with lanterns while plug points in the main area can be used to charge your camera batteries.
There is also a tree house where more adventurous guests can sleep one night out under the stars.

We are back! And had the most amazing time. Thank you so much for organising mine and Jodie's honeymoon, we couldn't have had a better time. The lodges each had their own characteristics, each making our stay there memorable, from sleeping in the tree house, romantic dinners in the bush, group dinners on the drive and breakfast in the wild. We were overwhelmed by whole experience and the welcome we received at Mohlabetsi, Africa on Foot and Ngala. Each reserve offered a different mix of wildlife and we spotted the big five on more than one occasion and a lot more.
We would just like to thank you for organising our adventure, we really enjoyed our time in South Africa and cannot wait to go back.
We just returned from our safari trip and we had an amazing time. I just really want to thank you for all your help and attention in helping us book this experience. We were completely overwhelmed with all the options and would not have been able to book it on our own.
Shindzela and Africa on Foot were amazing to us and we couldn't have asked to be treated better.
I will recommend your services and their camps to anyone and everyone who asks.
The owner of Rissington Inn (Chris) was so welcoming and we even got a room upgrade on our second stay and final night of our holiday - a really nice surprise! We think Rissington is going to be somewhere we return to frequently over the years, as well as the Klaserie Game Reserve [Africa on Foot] as we were just mesmerized by both. Floreal House in Cape Town was perfectly located for us, the staff were lovely and the accommodation was gorgeous - we even walked to the top of Table Mountain using the hotel as a starting point and felt very safe walking through the neighborhood both in the day and night times. We can't thank you enough for booking this holiday for us it has truly been an amazing experience and a country that we wish to visit again and again.
One of the most memorable holidays I had. Safari was awesome and have been recommending to everyone. I have also suggested to some to go via Travel Butlers as Natasha was fantastic and exceeded our expectations on all the choosen lodge and hotels. Merville Beach - the entertainment in the evening esp the Fri/Sat was very good just wished during the week it went on beyond 10.30pm.
I thought the camp [Africa on Foot] was perfect, it felt authentic and offered me the type of experience I was looking for. The staff were fantastic and Rein kept us all at ease through his confident approach to his job. I would certainly return again.

Like neighbouring reserves, the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve has had to significantly increase anti-poaching measures in order to protect not only rhino but other vulnerable species as well. As such, the rate for guests visiting the reserve whose booking was confirmed after 01 November 2018 now includes a Bed Levy, which goes towards ensuring that the reserve remains in pristine condition and helps to ensure the reduction of the camps carbon footprint, as well as a Conservation Levy which is used to subsidise anti-poaching efforts, further develop smart fences, pay additional teams, contribute to the cost of all counter poaching flights, and purchase new equipment to ensure the continual protection of vulnerable species with the reserve. If your booking was confirmed prior to this, you will be asked to pay the levies on arrival to assist the reserve in its conservation efforts.
Bush Walks / Walking Safaris
Children under the age of 16 years are not permitted on guided bush walks in the reserve. The final decision on whether a guest can join a guided bush walk remains with the guide and lodge manager.
