About

Meet the Feet

Both born and raised in Africa, David and Robyn feel incredibly privileged to have lived and worked in some of Africa’s greatest wildlife areas – the Kafue and South Luangwa in Zambia, the Matusadona and Mana Pools in Zimbabwe and then for 15 years in the Nyika National Park in Malawi.  Botswana is now their home.

Our journey through Africa over the last 50 years has led us to settle in Botswana, a vast country of few people with endless wilderness and some of the highest concentrations of wildlife to be found anywhere on the continent.

Here they are able to combine their love of horses with their love of the African wilderness.

Bird watching is also one of David’s passions, so be prepared with a good pair of binoculars!

David & Robyn Foot and family

We have always believed that life in the African bush is a family affair and our two children, Julie (15) and Harry (14), have grown up in some of the most beautiful places on Earth. With their love and knowledge of nature and horses they provide wonderful companionship to the children who come on safari with us.

Wilderness Conservation

A life in the safari world is integrally linked with the ongoing challenges of conserving Africa’s remaining wilderness areas and “The Feet” believe that everyone who is fortunate enough to be able to make their living in this way has a responsibility to immerse themselves in these difficult issues and contribute to a positive future.

In Malawi, which has some of the most threatened wildlife areas in Africa, David founded the Nyika-Vwaza Trust which continues to play a pivotal role in conserving two of Malawi’s most important wildlife areas.

Conserving and protecting Africa’s wild spaces is a long-term endeavour and you too can make the difference. Just by visiting, and sharing your experiences of, Africa and its beauty, you are preserving the future of an Earth rich with diversity.

Here in Botswana we are developing safaris that in turn provide benefits to remote communities and wildlife.
