The Foot Family

Born and raised in Africa, David feels incredibly privileged to have lived and worked in some of Africa’s most beautiful wildlife areas – the Kafue and Luangwa in Zambia, the Matusadona and Mana Pools in Zimbabwe and for 15 years he pioneered safaris in the Nyika National Park in Malawi.

Botswana is now home with his wife Robyn and rapidly growing up children. He loves having the Okavango Delta and Kalahari as his backyard!

With 32 years of experience under his belt David is at ease as a guide using any mode of transport – vehicles, on foot, by boat or canoe or on horseback.

Whichever type of safari you choose to join David on, he will ensure you are immersed in Africa and with his passion for the wilderness, its wildlife and birdlife he will bring the bush alive and inspire you with a lifetime of adventures.

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.

In Botswana we are collaborating with the OKMCT (Okavango Kopano Mekoro Community Trust) on our Okavango Delta Ride. This ride gives direct benefits to the local communities from the six villages that border this part of the Okavango Delta.

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.
