Redfoot Safaris is a South African based tour operator which arranges tailor-made vacations all over Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands, specialising in Southern and East Africa. Redfoot Safaris operated under the trading name of Tours for Africa for over 20 years before launching its new identity in 2013. Our idea behind the name Redfoot Safaris is that once the red dust of the African continent has touched your feet, it is hard to leave or not return. You just cannot shake off the pull of our beautiful continent and we at Redfoot Safaris would love to show you just how diverse Africa is.
Our team brings together years of experience in the travel industry with many repeat clients testifying to their confidence in us. Our slogan at Redfoot is ‘Inspired African Travel’ and we strive to achieve just that through creative itineraries and highly personalised service. Rex has brought his own flavour to the mix with his intimate knowledge of the bush and his experience working as a ranger at a couple of South Africa’s most loved lodges.
We understand what makes for a great safari experience; we understand family travel; we understand how Africa works – the logistics it takes to get you from A to B; we understand safety & security; and in these times we certainly understand the concept of a budget. Having said that we know all about creating a holiday or honeymoon of a lifetime with all the little extra’s along the way to make it yours. We enjoy getting to know our clients through the planning process and then putting this knowledge to good use in creating their trip. Give us a chance to create yours…
Specifically for our local South Africa clients – please don’t hesitate to contact us for great suggestions on your family holidays, weekends away, and special occasions. We specialize in Island holidays and luxury cruises both locally and internationally. We can offer fantastic deals on trips across the globe from the USA to Europe to the Far East.

Looking forward to the adventure,
The team at Redfoot Safaris
Hi Joan - We have arrived home safely - with just a little jet lag. Your guidance and expertise in planning this trip was invaluable. The trip exceeded all of my expectations!! I would not have changed anything. It would be difficult to pick out the best part of the trip - in that each day was so special. Rob and Heath were exceptional and a great part in making the trip so special. Londolozi was amazing. I'm not sure who we have to thank for our special Anniversary treat of lunch in the tree house; but thank you, thank you, thank you!! It still brings tears to my eyes thinking of the it!! We started the trip by saying "if" we go back to Africa only for it to be quickly changed to "when" we go back to Africa. So until next time, I thank you again for making this such a special experience!!
We were a group of three couples traveling to South Africa for the first time. We have traveled to Italy, Cuba, Mexico and other locations together and had arranged to stay in a house outside of Cape Town on our own. Redfoot Safaris was introduced to us by a friend in Phoenix that had a great experience in 2017. We communicated with Rex by email and phone and were impressed by his patience as none of us had ever been on a Safari and we had lots of questions. Rex arranged for us to have two full day tours of Cape Town and the surrounding area and we were so impressed with our guide that we engaged him for another full day. Upon arrival at Rattray on Mala Mala we could not believe how comfortable and luxurious the facilities were and the staff and their service was impeccable. Our guide, Garrett, was fantastic and a wealth of knowledge. We were exposed to a great number of animals and learned so much about their lives and their environment. It was both an educational and relaxing break and our photos and memories will be enjoyed for years to come. We highly recommend letting Redfoot make the arrangements so that the total experience can be enjoyed even though it is far from home. We would love to return and repeat the entire experience.
Our trip was just perfect - spent three days touring Cape Town and surroundings with our guide, George Meyer, who was fantastic. Other than our pick-up time, nothing was set in stone, and George allowed each day to unfold as it happened. We got to see everything on our list - and then some. From there we headed to MalaMala for a couple days safari, which were amazing - the accommodations at Rattray's were beautiful, and we saw more wildlife than we were expecting. Our safari guide was knowledgeable, friendly, and perfectly suited for our group. All details were taken care of by Redfoot/Rex, including being met at the Johannesburg airport, which was a huge help on our way home! Can't say enough about Rex, George, and MalaMala. Loved the trip!!
