A rustic yet intimate camp nestled in a forested area on the banks of the lagoon in the Shinde area, Footsteps Camp is a hidden gem offering the realest of African safari experiences. The camp may be simple but the personal and attentive service here more than makes up for the bucket shower. The food is prepared in the ‘bush kitchen’ and is truly superb; dine al fresco with the view of a lifetime. The camp also offers a Young Explorer’s Club in which families can book out the camp exclusively and enjoy a tailored family safari with many exciting activities to keep the kids busy, such as making bow and arrows, tracking animals, learning to cook on open fire and playing football with the camp staff (min age limit).

With only 3 tents (max 7 guests), it means that, along with the attentive staff, your needs are well catered for. The simple yet comfortable and spacious tents are well equipped for whatever you may need, with en-suite bush bathrooms, insect repellent, torches and lanterns, a wardrobe, water flasks and even flip flops and kikois for your use!
Created in their ‘bush kitchen’ of an open fire and ground oven, it’s remarkable the creative and flavoursome meals they produce. With humble and locally grown and sourced ingredients, the chef prepares fresh, varied and delicious food to satisfy the hungriest and pickiest of eaters as they dine al fresco in this wild and natural paradise. After dinner, gather round the fire pit to share stories and gaze at the billions of stars above you.
Their speciality! Be sure to explore the bush on foot while you are here, with their professional guides you are completely immersed in the bush and gain a completely different perspective than on a drive. Appreciate the sights, sounds, smells and even tastes of the African wilderness as you acquaint yourself with the smaller lifeforms that make up this spectacular part of the world.
Our time at Footsteps was the best family vacation we have ever taken! The team treated us like family, yet better, as they exceeded all expectations that each one of us had. My husband and I brought our 22, 20, and 18 year old kids as well as my mother. Noah and Rapz, our guides, ensured we saw every animal possible such as multiple cheetahs, lions, elephants, giraffes, hippos, zebras, crocodiles, honey badgers.
Just returned from Footsteps where we spent my husband’s 70th birthday. What to say? Absolutely amazing. This is our second visit and we were a little concerned that it would not live up to the last time. No need it was even better, if that’s possible. The accommodation is rustic which is what the experience is about.
This is one of the best camps at the Okavango Delta, run by Kerr & Downing. Everything was first class. New vehicles, well trained and friendly staff, excellent food, well stocked kitchen and bar. Our guides Opie and Kelly were very experienced and knowledgeable. Good sense of humor.
