Tour & Safari Details
Barefoot Safaris

With the ‘Golden Age’ of discovery long since past, most of the world's surface mapped in detail and motorized transport, satellite phones and GPS receivers readily available, one would think it was time for explorers to hang up their pith helmets. But rather than consigning exploration to the dustbin of history, we at Barefoot Safaris have redefined it with adventure travel. So join us in re-exploring the unmapped regions of Africa.

Our mission is to share our knowledge and love of this wonderful continent. Our Safaris take you to the real Africa, giving you the opportunity to feel, touch and smell Africa.

Barefoot Safaris is registered in both Zambia and in Malawi, but we are based in Malawi’s capital at Lilongwe. Barefoot specializes in small group adventure and photographic tours. We also offer safaris with an emphasis on walking or trekking and for the more experienced traveler we offer individually designed itineraries.

Within Malawi, adventure pursuits such as horse riding, trekking, mountain climbing, kayaking on Lake Malawi and sailing, walking and mobile safaris are all available. We can even arrange self-drive safaris or 4x 4 hire options.

We are proud of our links with the local community and dedicated to supporting worthy projects, such as the upgrading of rural schools, building houses in local villages, providing medical assistance and projects to save the African wilderness; including support for anti-poaching units.

Barefoot safaris liaise with other operators to establish the best combination to make a holiday memorable. We provide a fast and efficient response to individual needs and children are very welcome on many of our tours. We use only professional and fully qualified guides and all our English speaking personnel are trained to help make your holiday a safe and special adventure.

Barefoot also operates Barefoot Safari Lodge just outside Lilongwe

Kenneth Smith, originally from South Africa, established Barefoot Safaris in 1992 to fill a niche in the adventure travel market specifically catering for the needs of the more adventurous traveller within the sub-region of Central, Eastern and Southern Africa. We are a family run safari operator, totally committed to eco-tourism and conservation with a responsible travel code.
