A special perspective of the delta
For those wishing for an intensely personal experience in the Okavango Delta walking safaris offer a unique way of exploring the delta. Whilst most camps outside the National Parks and Game Reserves allow walking safaris a number of operators have specialist walking programmes.
Operating out of authentic safari camps these specialist programmes allow a special perspective of the delta and are ideal for family or small groups of friends. Walking in the wilderness is a highlight of a ‘true’ safari experience. No special training is required as the focus is on exploration and discovery with fresh spoor tracked each morning.
The emphasis is on guided walks which allow guests to focus on learning how to track wildlife and understand animal movement, patterns and behaviour. Being on foot rather than in a vehicle allows guests to gain in-depth information on trees, grasses and the finer details.
Although the focus at these camps is on the walking experience, other activities, such as game drives and mokoro excursions are offered to supplement the walking.
These are the original ‘Africa under canvas’ safaris.
