Directions To Africa on Foot CampFrom Johannesburg/Pretoria Take the N12 or N4 highway to Witbank / eMalahleni (from Johannesburg Airport, follow signs to Boksburg to find the N12). Follow the N4 highway past Middleburg (Toll Plaza), Belfast and Machadodorp (Toll Plaza). Follow the Schoemanskloof option on the N4 and then take the R36 to Lydenburg/Mashishing. Follow the R36 to Ohrigstad, go through the Strydom Tunnel and take the R527 to Hoedspruit. Turn right onto the R40 towards Klaserie, and continue along this road until you see the turning off to the left for Eastgate Airport. Turn left here and after 300m you will go through a control gate and then head directly for the Timbavati Game Reserve Gate. 17km later look out for Josmacs Bush Pub on your right hand side. In front of you now will be the new Timbavati Gate. Right opposite Josmacs and to the left of the Timbavati Gate is the turn off left (dirt road) for the Klaserie Game Reserve and the Incheni Gate. Take this turn off left and drive straight until you come to the Incheni Gate. Do not turn off anywhere until you get to the Incheni Gate. Once at the gate, give the gatekeeper your details, and turn immediately right (i.e. like after 5-10 metres after entering the gate and before the little hut) and then follow that road with the fence on your right. The road will fork into three, and the fence line will end at the same time, take the middle road and follow the sign marked as “Africa on Foot Camp”. Drive along this straight dirt road until you see the next “Africa on Foot Camp” sign. Turn left here and then turn left again at the next Africa on Foot Camp sign board. Do not get out of your car until you reach the lodge. You may see some wildlife on your way - if you do, slow down and maintain a good distance. Do not drive off-road in any circumstances.
Area AttractionsAfrica on Foot is unique in the Kruger for offering proper walking safaris. Most Kruger safari lodges only offer an optional walk after breakfast where the guide normally assigns his tracker to take the guests on a gentle stroll in the lodge vicinity. Africa on Foot focuses on proper two to four hour morning walking safaris (depending on the level of fitness). Walking Safaris Each Walking Safari 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 addition to allowing you to view the larger mammals on foot, the rangers will give you an insight into the bush that will surprise you. They will explain the animal tracks and what animals passed through during the night, in addition to the sophistication of termite mounds and other interesting facets of the bush that go unnoticed on game drives. The chance to walk amongst wildlife allows you to fully immerse yourself in African smells and sounds. The main aim of a Kruger Walking Safari is to help you appreciate the nature around you, and to provide you with detailed explanations of spoors, vegetation and the ecology in general – an unmatched wildlife experience that you will remember lifelong. Game Drives One of the main aims of going on safari is to go on a game drive. On game drives you are able to get a lot closer to big game. The animals are generally habituated to the vehicle. This 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 large animals – and safely! All game drives are conducted in open 4 x 4 Toyota Landcruisers. No roof allows you 360 degree views, perfect for wonderful photographic and video opportunities. The afternoon game drives generally leave at 4pm and stop for sundowners, and then continue into the night drive on your way back to camp. Night Drives 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. Expect to see a wide variety of animals not normally seen during the day, including leopards, hyenas, aardvarks, bat-eared fox, porcupines, bush babies, bushbucks, mongoose, genet cats and nocturnal birds like owls and nightjars.
