At Footsteps Across The Delta (walking safari) you enter one of the great, untamed regions of Africa: the spectacular Okavango Delta. 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. Each tent has its own bucket shower and porcelain flush toilet, which is attached to the back of the tent and there is even a daily laundry service. The ‘bush kitchen’ is run by our chef and prepares menus to whet all appetites.
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.
