Shinde Footsteps

Shinde Footsteps is situated in the Shinde Concession, one of the most diverse regions of the Okavango Delta, offering a variety of habitats: riverine forests, palm islands, permanent swamps and dry veld. The camp is true to the original ‘under canvas African safari’, essentially an exclusive camp that offers a specialised walking experience. This rustic bush camp offers accommodation in three simply furnished meru-style tents, each with an open-air bush shower and an adjoining bush toilet. The main dining area is under canvas with evenings spentrelaxing around the campfire sharing stories of the day. The Footsteps experience focuses on walking in the delta led by a highly specialised armed guide, suitable for those looking for a little more than your average safari (the minimum age is sixteen years old). The emphasis is on exploration and discovery, each morning tracking fresh spoor to reveal the night’s events. Other activity options at the camp include fishing and mokoro excursions and possibly game drives, depending on water levels and the preferences of the guests in camp.
