Klaserie Safari Time Lapse Video

A whirlwind safari recorded on Greg’s ‘dash cam’ as he guides a game drive at Africa on Foot in the Klaserie. A chilly winter’s morning with a bit too much wind last week meant that a game drive was opted for over a walking safari, and Greg mounted his camera to record the bushveld cruise…

An Elephant at Xobega Island Camp

It’s not every day your afternoon nap is disturbed by the thudding sounds of Africa’s favourite marula fruit hitting the ground around your tent, followed by the gentle padding of a leathery trunk feeling for the fallen fruit on the ground. Once you’ve come to and opened your eyes, you are reminded that you are…

Elephant Pool Party in the Klaserie

It’s unbelievable how the brief rains in the Klaserie completely transformed the bush.

Leopardess Cleo Seen Strutting Her Stuff in Klaserie

Ever since the unusually dry summer season arrived, and the water-dependant prey species wandered off to find reliable rivers and dams to sustain themselves, leopards have come out of the woodwork like never before. The dominant lions are focused on following the buffalo herds, and we’ve seen the Trilogy creep quietly toward areas where they can…

Elephants from above in the Sabi Sand

The Sand River flows and dries up with the change in seasons in South Africa’s Kruger Lowveld. As the summer heat creeps in, the epic thunderstorms roll in on through great, purple clouds, and the rains nourish the land after a long, dry winter, and rivers such as the Sand fill up and bring life…

Africa on Foot Maintenance Man: Alfred Cuambe

There’s no denying that a lot goes on behind the scenes to make any safari lodge run like a well-oiled machine. Africa on Foot is sewn together delicately by a team of people who do their jobs well. One of those people is Alfred Cuambe; a Mozambican firecracker whose role as Head of Maintenance includes fighting…

Top 5 Videos of the Week: A Walk Through Our Camps

You’ve ogled over videos and photo albums of wild animals, hypnotic sunsets and incredible game drives. But what does it feel like to go on safari? And what do the lodges look like? How close is the swimming pool to your bedroom? These are all valid questions, often not answered until you arrive at camp….

3 Trilogy Male Lions for nThambo Tree Camp

Merciful rain poured down last night after some very hot temperatures yesterday and everyone at nThambo Tree Camp rose with the excitement of a morning game drive in cooler weather.
