Shinde Footsteps

Shinde Footsteps is an exclusive camp in the lovely Shinde Concession in the north-eastern Okavango Delta.

Shinde Footsteps is a wonderful little camp with an exclusive and beautiful location and operates with only six guests at any one time. Its recent refurbishment and rebranding (formerly Footsteps Camp), while certainly raising the level of accommodation, has still retained an authentic bush camp feel where you feel very much a part of the natural environment, often with game strolling through camp. There is a small and friendly team to look after you and activities are led by excellent guides. While no longer a purely walking-focused camp, Shinde Footsteps does offer the option to book a specialist walking guide and so is a great option for those who want to explore the Delta in more depth, without losing too many creature comforts. With its intimate size, Shinde Footsteps makes the perfect choice to book exclusively for small groups and families; and with Ker and Downey’s excellent Young Explorers programme, the camp is a fantastic option for families with children aged from seven years. Footsteps offers good value for money, with flexible options for a more specialist safari.
