Okavango Delta, Botswana
At Footsteps Across the Delta (walking safari) you enter one of the great, untamed regions of Africa: the spectacular Okavango Delta. Hosting a maximum of six guests at a time, Footsteps Across The Delta offers a personal safari experience making it an ideal option for small groups of friends or family.
Experience the astonishing contrasts created when the mighty Okavango River flows into the arid Kalahari Desert - the result is a variety of habitats, riverine forest, palm islands, permanent swamps and dry sandveld all with an unparalleled wealth of animal diversity. This safari maintains the elegance and eccentricity of the original ‘under canvas African safari’. The emphasis is on exploring this breathtakingly beautiful and diverse environment as the first African explorers did, either by Mokoro (dependent on water levels) or on foot.
This comfortable and private Footsteps camp accommodates guests in three specially designed twin-bedded Meru tents, complete with sewn-in floors. One of the three twin bedded tents can be converted into a family unit that sleeps five. Each tent has its own newly refurbished en-suit bathroom including wash basin, porcelain flush toilet and bush shower, even a daily laundry service. The 'bush kitchen' is run by our chef and prepares menus to whet all appetites.
The Footsteps camp is in a remote part of the Okavango Delta and home to two safaris. Firstly 'Footsteps Across the Delta' a walking safari and secondly 'Young Explorers', a specialist family safari. From this wonderful base we are able to offer something very special – the opportunity to explore the wilderness on foot: to get up close and personal with the African bush. It's not to be missed.
Walking in the wilderness is the highlight of a true safari experience. No special training is required as the focus is on exploration and discovery – tracking fresh spoor each morning to reveal the night’s events. Guests will be in the hands of the best professional guides whose first passion is to interpret and bring to life every aspect of the bush. Other possible activities include game-drives, Mokoro or fishing trips, which vary throughout the year.
The following camps compliment Footsteps Across the Delta well, and should be considered when extending an itinerary.
