Delta Camp’s guests enjoy the luxury of their own private guide. Our guides are locals - this is a man of the swamp, born and raised in the area, and you will spend your days in his mokoro (pl. mekoro), gliding through the floodplains and channels, and walking under his guidance on some of the many islands in the area, taking in the magnificent scenery and light as well as the abundant game and bird-life of the Okavango.
Footsteps in Africa is the largest circuit of independent camps, lodges and services in Botswana, all unified under the Footsteps in Africa banner. Our circuit offers a "one stop shop" and we even have our own charter company, Delta Air, servicing the key areas of northern Botswana - Central Kalahari, Okavango Delta, Moremi Game Reserve and Chobe National Park. The Footsteps in Africa camps and lodges form an excellent circuit of lodges.
We have offices in Hoedspruit and Maun to provide on-the-ground service in Southern Africa.
Footsteps in Africa is committed to providing a quality, rewarding and affordable safari experience for our guests, while being aware of both our impact, and that of our guests, on the environment.

Predominantly a ʻwaterʼ camp with walks on the neighbouring islands. At Delta Camp we still use the traditional mokoro (dug-out canoe), not the fiberglass replicas.
We accommodate 16 guests in 7 luxury chalets that are raised and built from reed and wood. Each chalet has an en-suite bathroom with hot and cold running water.
Children of all ages are welcome. We have two family rooms to accommodate families. We have no age restrictions as we believe you know your children and their capabilities, and as you will not be going on safari with other guests you have no one but yourselves to consider.
Game of all sorts are abundant: lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant, hippopotamus, crocodile, giraffe, antelope including the rare lechwe, tsessebe and sitatunga, otters, honey-badgers, the shy pangolin, and a variety of the smaller wild cats such as civets, servals and genets are amongst the many mammal species that visit the Delta. There are also reptiles – many species of snakes (most of them harmless), as well as several species of tortoise, terrapin, lizard, skinks, chameleon and gecko – not forgetting, of course, the Nile crocodile. Then of course there are the birds, well over 450 species, that bring the forests, rivers and flood-plains of the Okavango to life. Many rare and endangered species call the Okavango home, and birders come from all around the world come in search of them.
The power at Delta Camp is generated by solar panels, and where possible the water is heated in similar fashion. Delta Camp also considers the environment by ensuring that the large four and six-wheel-drive fuel tankers do not cross floodplains and streams or cut through forests to deliver diesel for their generators. The generators are regularly serviced to ensure they are in excellent working condition and do not emit excess air pollution.
