Footsteps across the Delta
In 1998 Shinde started to run walking trails in NG21, which they now market as ‘Footsteps across the Delta’. Along with Selinda’s walking trails, this is one of the few operations in the Delta that take walking safaris really seriously.
As with any good walking safari, numbers here are small and these camps take a maximum of six people at a time. Accommodation is in small, twin-bedded tents that are moved each day to a different location. Each is lit by gaslight, and set up with an adjacent private bucket shower and long-drop toilet.
It’s all very rustic with dinner usually eaten under the stars, although standards of food are good with lots of effort made to use fresh fruit and vegetables, bake fresh bread each day despite the camp’s remote locations, and (of course) to provide a well-stocked bar.
The days here revolve around walking, though occasional trips by mokoro are also possible; you can normally expect two walks of 3-4 hours in duration, one in the morning and one in the evening.
