One of the special attractions of authentic, traditional, rustic Footsteps Camp is its exclusivity. Each family has the use of the private six-bedded camp, a professional guide, personal chef, waiter, housekeeper and dedicated mokoro guides. This gives you total flexibility to explore the bush at your leisure.
This comfortable private camp accommodates guests in three specially designed, twin-bedded, Meru tents complete with sewn-in floors. One of the tents can be converted into a family unit that sleeps five. Each tent has its own newly refurbished en-suite bathroom including wash basin, porcelain flush toilet and bush shower, and even a daily laundry service. The ‘bush kitchen’ is run by the chef, who prepares menus to whet all appetites.
From this wonderful base you can enjoy the very special opportunity to explore the wilderness on foot: getting up close and personal with the African bush and its wild inhabitants is a thrill you shouldn’t miss. A selection of activities is planned with the whole family in mind. Parents can enjoy some peace and quiet while an expertly trained Young Explorers guide entertains the children with a multitude of activities to suit all ages. The emphasis is on learning how to track game both on foot and in 4×4 safari vehicles. Children also learn how to: make small animal traps; start a fire from nothing more than two sticks; recognise different animal spoor; identify a range of birds; try their hand at poling a mokoro (subject to water levels); drive a safari vehicle; fish; and shoot an air rifle at tin cans. On completion of the safari, children receive a Young Explorers certificate, T-shirt and cap.
