About the camp

This is a mobile safari camp; meaning nothing in the camp structure is permanent. It is designed to be set up and broken down with ease and having as little impact on the environment as possible. The dome tents are pitched on the ground and a temporary fire pit is dug on arrival, and covered up prior to departure. 

There is also a ‘mess tent’, which is a canvas construction to house the kitchen, food prep, and washing up facilities. This is where the private chef will work to prepare those fire-cooked meals you will enjoy under the stars in the evening. A dining table is set every evening, and in the mornings to offer up coffee and rusks before departure. 

The camp is an intimate setup, designed for the group to socialise around the fire in the evenings, and enjoy the natural ambience of the bush.

Location

Africa on Foot Wilderness Trails is located in the Maseke Balule Game Reserve in the Greater Kruger, situated between Hoedpsruit and Phalaborwa in Limpopo Province.

It is an 8000 hectare private game reserve, which shares open borders with the Kruger National Park. The location changes because you will be walking over 3 days, and camping in a different spot each night. However, all trails are within the Maseke Balule Game Reserve. 

The Olifants River courses through the reserve, while prominent mountainous ridges and boulder koppies characterise the terrain, making it an incredibly diverse and interesting region to explore on foot. There is also an old Mica mine in the area, so expect a fascinating landscape littered with geological marvels. 

GPS co-ordinates are : -24.179048, 30.822079
