I'm going to volunteer on a game reserve in Kwazulu Natal, South Africa from July to September and was wondering which shoes would be best? People have suggested Desert Boots but I'm not sure if the ones available now would be good enough quality.
The best advice I can give is to go to a shop dealing in adventure gear when arriving in South Africa. Cape Union Mart is a good option- They stock a good variety of specialised footwear for whatever condition and terrain.

In the southern winter, it can get very chilly at night and in the early morning (even to 0). You will want closed toe shoes and socks.
It depends on your activities when you volunteer, but you will most likely be fine with running shoes. Desert boots or Australian Blundstone boots are great, but not necessary. In the southern winter, snakes are not very active, so the importance of protecting your ankles from snake bite is reduced (but again, it depends a lot on your activities and where you will be volunteering).
What is most important is shoes that fit well I which you can walk in all day (although you drive a lot in a game reserve).
I'm sure the game reserve will have good advice for you. almost 6 years ago
