On our Footsteps Walking Safari, you enjoy one of the great, untamed regions of Africa. The spectacular Okavango Delta in Botswana! You get to 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 traditional safari maintains the elegance and of the original ‘under canvas Africa safari’. The emphasis on this 3 night Footsteps walking safari is on exploring this breathtakingly beautiful and diverse environment as the first African explorers did. Either by mokoro or on foot...


You stay at Footsteps Across the Delta Camp on the Shinde Concession in the Okavango Delta. This consists of three insect-proof tents, with sewn-in floors and proper beds, a private bucket shower and bush toilet for each tent, a game-viewing platform and a bush kitchen with meals cooked over the camp fire. This is a more rustic mobile safari camp than the more traditional photographic safari camps but surprisingly comfortable.

The Footsteps walking safari combines well with the luxuries offered by either Shinde Camp or Kanana Camp. Many of our clients follow a three night Footsteps walking safari with two nights at a safari camp enjoying the contrasting safari experience.

Similarly flexibility is key at Footsteps – this Footsteps walking safari can be extended to make a four night safari if you prefer.

Note: This safari does not operate from December to February! It is too hot and humid to do walking safaris in comfort...
