They are now family! True blessing. Saw many beautiful places that we will never forget.  Our second time here, ready for our third.  They went beyond our expectations, caring, sharing history as well. Cannot express it all.

What a great time at camp! Fun times, morning, noon and night!! So many memories, nice outings and wonderful hosts. Theuns was an exceptional guide and gentlemen. Hisako and I had a great time but not enough rest. Have a very successful season. Come visit, stay or whatever in California in the USA!!
– Gregg and Hisako

We had a great time on our hunting trip. Achieved all our hunting goals. G and TJ were excellent guides. Pita and Tarina were perfect hosts. The lodge is just what we pictured for Africa, rustic yet comfortable and was excellent. We will definitely be back.
– Mark and Terri Wilson, Claire City SD.

I have been to South Africa once, but I can’t imagine “Wild Footprint Safaris” not being the best that there is. The food is amazing, the hosting is incredible and the guides are extremely knowledgeable about the game that is hunted. Not only does this outfit make one feel like friends, but they make one feel like family. I personally have come to love Pieter-Louise, Tarina, Gerhard and Theuns as family. I will most definitely be back to hunt here!!

Dear new friends, it was an honor to stay at your farm! I really felt like home and welcomed the entire stay with especially your home – shot – and made meat, sharing around the fire and letting me stay and sleep at your lodge. For your kindness and everything you lend to me, I invite you to stay at my home in Germany when you’re going to visit Germany one day. Thank you for everything, baie dankie!
