For those of you who want to experience a safari itinerary on foot then Footseteps Across the Delta is on of the best here in Botswana. The team is dedicated in providing you with this authentic experience with professional walking guides.
Accommodation is in rustic semi-permanent tents right in the tick of the wilderness… this is a very good way to get back on your feet.
You can take the opportunity to book the “Young Explorers” programme here.
The ever present herds of buffalo, elephant, zebra, wildebeest and impala are complimented with fantastic sightings of red lechwe racing through the waterways. Along the permanent waterways of the Delta, one might if are lucky see the very elusive sitatunga antelope and more common reed buck and water buck.
Predator species are high in number, especially with lion and hyena. Leopard sighting are extremely good as are cheetah and wild dog.
Due to the nature of the waterways, flooded plains and dryer areas, birdlife is some of the best available in the country. Birds range from Africa Pygmy-Goose flying low over the waters, Coppery-tailed Coucal, Bateleur Eagles and the rare Wattled Crane and Slaty Egret.
Walking in the Okavango Delta’s 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. Other possible activities include game-drives, Mokoro or fishing trips (subject to water levels). The Footsteps walking experience combines well with the luxuries offered by either Shinde, Dinaka, Okuti or Kanana.
The emphasis is on guided walks which allow you to focus on learning how to track wildlife and understand animal movement, patterns and behaviour. Being on foot instead of in a vehicle also allows you to gain in-depth information on trees, grasses and the finer details.
The Young Explorers safari is a specially designed programme which offers families the opportunity to discover the wonders of the African wilderness – together. One of the special attractions of this safari is its exclusivity. Each family has the use of the Footsteps Camp a private six-bedded camp, a professional guide, personal chef, waiter, housekeeper and dedicated Mokoro guides. It literally allows guests to explore the bush at their leisure, while never losing sight of the fact that being in the wilderness is also about having fun!
Contact us for more details on the Young Explorers safari.
The comfortable and private Footsteps camps accommodate guests in three specially designed twin-bedded Meru tents, complete with sewn-in floors.
Each tent has its own bucket shower and bush toilet which is attached to the back of the tent, and there is even a daily laundry service.
The ʻbush kitchenʼ is run by the chef who prepares menus to wet all appetites.
