On a 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 on on foot or by Mokoro (dependant on water levels).
Hosting a maximum of six guests at a time, Footsteps Across The Delta offers a personal safari experience making it an ideal option for couples, small groups of friends or family alike. 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 finer details.
