Client Feedback

  • I did not plan to stay with Judie and Bruce but i think that this was the best part of my journey. Sometimes you do meet people in your life where you do have a good vibe with. It is unbelievable that you can have that kind of connection after a couple of hours. They help you out if you need their help, the give you the right advice if you ask for it. They are very professional in what they do and there heart is on the right place. I learnt a lot about the bush, there are so knowledgeable and i spent one year in the bush before i met them. I did not spend only that first night at there place. I have been back twice to spend more time with them. I hope to keep in touch with them for a long time. I will be a visitor again when i will visit them but it feels as a member of the family.

Thrilling encounters with African Wildlife visiting three reserves of the Greater Kruger providing game viewing at it’s best.
The shuttle leaves the city early to get to the Greater Kruger at noon. After checking into Tom Cats Safari Inn and enjoying a light lunch in the garden it is time to leave for Thornybush Game Reserve and the first  of the three reserves. Thornybush Game Reserve is a highly productive introduction to game viewing at its best. The photographic opportunities are excellent and the professional guides know how to line up that shot. The game drive goes on until after dark: the best time to seek out the big cats. Dinner is served back at Tom Cats Safari Inn before falling into bed in the en suite twin bedded accommodation and listening to the night sounds.
The morning start is at dawn with the open vehicle collecting guests and heading to Orpen Gate of Kruger National Park for a full day’s thrilling wildlife encounters, and productive birding. Meals are served at one of the picnic spots and a cold box of drinks is close at hand. The game drive will wind back to camp in the late afternoon in time for sundowner drinks and dinner.
On day three the morning is at leisure with a later wake up and a relaxed breakfast. The gardens at Tom Cats and the adjacent dam provide some brilliant birding and there is fishing in the dam or relaxing at the sparkling pool to pass the morning. In the late morning we depart for the adjacent Klaserie Game Reserve the last of the three reserves. Lunch is served before the afternoon’s game viewing.   Accommodation is in 5 en suite rooms and a central lounge and dining area and pool that make up the main areas.
 The thrilling game viewing at Africa on Foot is often a wildlife encounter while walking with an armed guide and perhaps even  tracking one of the big five.  Morning outings tend to be more walking while the afternoon game drive progresses into a night drive. Dinner is mostly served under the stars in the open air boma where a camp fire is made and tables set around the fire.
Morning brings a walk and yet another wildlife encounter with a professional guide. The smaller game is pointed out while on foot and animal tracks provide a fascinating challenge.
Breakfast is served back at camp with loads of cold juice for the thirsty intrepid trailists and a hearty cooked meal before departing to meet the shuttle back to the city.
