Africa on Foot Winner of Best Walking Safari in 2016

Africa on Foot has won the prestigious title of Best Walking Safari 2016 in this year’s highly anticipated Safari Awards at London’s World Trade Market. This title is a victory in a highly specialised field and we are thrilled to have been voted as the best operation in South Africa. It is in our name and in the model we have developed over the last decade as a walking safari operation. A small and intimate bush camp, eco-friendly, unfenced, and woven seamlessly into the Klaserie bushveld, Africa on Foot is honest in its mission to inspire and enchant its guests in nature.

Without the continued support from Africa on Foot’s repeat guests, and the unending flow of new faces around camp spreading the news of their safari through online reviews and social media support, this award could not be a reality. So, thank you to those Africa on Foot fans (some of whom are brave enough to tattoo our logo and wear it with pride!) who we have already got to know, and those we still have the pleasure of meeting.

The Best Walking Safari in South Africa for 2016 – what an honour! Every morning is a new day to explore the Klaserie in the most uncensored way possible, and to translate this fascinating world to visitors who travel to South Africa from all over the globe. We will continue to strive for the best, and we look forward to doing it with you!
