David Foot Walking Safari

An exclusive walking and fly-camping adventure in the stunning wilderness of the southern Okavango Delta, Botswana.

If you are keen on walking and are looking for a more adventurous bush experience, there are limited options to consider in Botswana. This safari is one of the few options available where you can focus on walking, be superbly guided, enjoy simple tented accommodation and explore the wilderness without coming across other tourists. The Okavango Delta is of course beautiful, serene and full of wildlife, and although big game is not always the prime focus when walking, there is a good range of wildlife to be encountered, including predators. On any safari of this kind guiding and personal hosting is crucial and this is one of the real strengths of this safari experience. Whether it is David Foot himself guiding you, or one of his specialist professional guides, you are guaranteed top quality guiding and hosting, with an emphasis on learning about the bush and the ecosystem you are exploring. This safari may not be for everyone, and is certainly not the best way to try and see the ‘big five’, but for those seeking a wilderness escape on foot it is a magical option.
