Footsteps across the Delta Camp Description
At Footsteps across the Delta you enter one of the great, untamed regions of Africa, the spectacular Okavango Delta, and experience the astonishing contrasts created when the mighty Okavango River flows into the arid Kalahari Desert. The emphasis is on exploring this breathtakingly beautiful and diverse environment as the first African explorer’s did, either by mokoro or on foot.
The six guest camp is an original Africa under Canvas concept, with Meru tents, en-suite facilities that have a bucket shower and bush toilet. The Bush kitchen has a personal chef to cater to all appetites.
Footsteps across the Delta Camp Game Viewing and Wildlife Activities
The Footsteps experience allows you to get your feet on the ground, leave your vehicle behind, and to really appreciate the sights, sounds and smells of the Okavango. You will be accompanied by an armed professional guide at all times. It is also a great way to see birds and to enjoy quality game viewing, as walking offers you the opportunity to appreciate the wildlife of the area at your own pace.
The main emphasis on staying here is walking but guests have a vehicle and mokoros at their disposal allowing them to make up their stays up how they want.
Walking in the Delta’s wilderness is the highlight of a ‘true safari’ experience. No special training is required, as distances travelled are manageable and the focus is on exploration and discovery – each morning tracking fresh spoor to reveal the night’s events. Other possible activities include game-drives, mokoro trips or fishing, which vary throughout the year. The Footsteps walking experience combines well with the luxuries offered by either Shinde or Kanana.
Footsteps Camp does not have electricity generated at the camp, but charging of cameras etc is possible at Footsteps from the vehicle batteries, provided the appropriate cigarette lighter adaptor is brought by the guest.
