Footsteps Across the Delta Review

This is the ultimate back-to-nature experience. The emphasis is on learning the secrets of the Okavango—on foot and by mokoro. Because this is a mobile camp that moves with the seasons, there is no electricity, but you'll be more than rewarded for the lack of luxury by the surrounding bird and animal life. The night sounds are awesome, from roaring lions to the ghostly screams of the Pel's fishing owl. Walking with outstanding guides who will answer all of your questions about the surrounding bush is the main activity, but there are also game drives, night drives, boat trips, and fishing opportunities. You'll sleep in one of only three tents with insect-proofing and sewn-in floors, where two iron bedsteads, some wooden shelves, and a small table are the only furnishings. You'll wash in a canvas washstand outside your tent (where there are also two canvas chairs), and your bathroom consists of a bush toilet and an overhead bucket shower.
