Hi Ken and Ivan!
Here is a review for you guys for your website :)
Barefoot Safaris was excellent to work with from start to finish. We were heading to Namibia on another trip, and wanted to book an excursion at Etosha National Park before our other scheduled trip. They were very flexible and booked us an amazing, affordable excursion. When the other tour operator failed to respond to email and phone inquiries, Barefoot went way above and beyond to help us track them down and get our trip back on schedule. They worked with an excellent local tour operator and we had a great time on our safari! When we head back to Africa, we will definitely be booking with Barefoot!!
Thank you again for all you did for us, it truly was the only good thing to come out of 2020!!

There's no better way to learn what an adventure is like than from the firsthand experiences from fellow travelers which is what you will experience from the amazing people at BareFoot Safari. If you're looking for the real deal—unbiased, unedited, truly unique itinerary then look no further. My wife and I had the time of our lives in South Africa, and Uganda from the rich wine country to the majestic Mountain Gorillas with all accommodations and travel guides extraordinaire. As just one example we asked our guide if he could arrange a local school visit (unplanned) and without hesitation he made arrangements for us to shop for school supplies and find a school that needed help for us to give back to the local community. We couldn't be happier and have already started talking about where to go next after we visit Morocco in 2021 and Bare Foot will be the first ones we call.

Good Day Ken, We had a brilliant time - wonderful weather, stunning locations, beautiful drives, good wildlife sightings. This is our second outing with Barefoot and we have really appreciated the service and guidance. We are planning our next safari , in 2121, to Zimbabwe with Ken and his team.
Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe (2019)
Our camping trip around Namibia through Botswana and concluding in Zimbabwe (Victoria Falls) was full of adventure, packed with wild life sightings and encounters, and vivid memorable 4WD experiences. Our guide made it an unforgettable experience. Perfect and safe itinerary for our family of four.

We have been lucky enough to have gone on several safaris previously but not to Namibia. Due to the landscape we found our Namibian safari totally different to the others that we have been on. An amazing place with amazing people, animals and lodges - they all contributed to make this a memorable holiday experience. Our safari guide's knowledge was exceptional: Mr Barefoot

We returned from our trip last week. Everything went very well. The lodges and the staff were very good and we had good times during our safaris. And even if the wild dogs have been brief overview that we keep beautiful impressions of nature and peace. We will return to South Africa, obviously.Thank you for your help, your professionalism, kindness and for your prompt response to our wishes for this trip. Your hospitality and your great house needs to be mentioned. And your braai skills.Thank you for your advice.

It was a perfect 6 weeks of safari with brilliant guiding done by Ken. His encyclopedic knowledge about the fauna and flora is amazing.Eva was the perfect host. We learned so much about the countries. The lodges we perfect, the canoe trip on the Zambezi (overnighting on a island)a excursion to remember forever. As you know we have booked another safari to SA for November 2019. Rock and roll.

Andrew and I are all well and I just picked up the pictures today - I can't wait to have time to really look at them but I think we have some winners. All in this entire trip was wonderful and met our expectations. You made every effort to see that we were taken care of and followed up every concern and suggestion. It was a amazing being with you and sharing your knowledge of Cape Town , and the “beasties” . I will recommend your services whenever I am able to do so.

Hi, I wanted to thank you so much for organising (and hand-holding) us on our trip to South Africa last November. The holiday was absolutely awesome. We did so much and learnt so much and I’ve fallen in love with the country! We did the whale and dolphin watching. Jason did the highest bungee jump, met some lovely people in Wilderness, saw the penguins and did some wine tastingg.. Your way of running the safari was spot on, so thanks again. Our time in your house in Rooiels was 5 star. What an amazing place.

For our recent trip to S.A. I booked several accommodation thru Barefoot Safaris. I just wanted to tell you that everything worked out perfectly with all the bookings and also your booking was very quick and professional. I hope I have the opportunity to re-visit South Africa soon, I will then make my bookings with Barefoot Safaris again. I will also recommend your website to friends and colleagues planning a trip to S.A. Thanks to Marina.
