What does the drought mean for the Ker & Downey Botswana camps?

ShindeKanana, and Okuti will be open until the 6th Jan 2017; at which point we close until the 1st March 2017. All three camps will be able to offer their water based activities through to the end of the season.

The current conditions in Botswana are having a positive impact on wildlife sightings, increasing both diversity and frequency.

Shinde and Okuti are entirely unimpeded by the water levels.  
At Kanana the mokoro activity has really been enhance with trips out to the Heronry. Soak up the sights and sounds of this wonderful location from the unique vantage point of a Mokoro. We have had to adapt the boat cruise slightly due to blockages in the channel. But do not fear guests are still able to get out and experience this water element of the Delta. Your guests can expect to be out on the boat for an hour or so, in which time their guide will explain this ecosystem. It's a great time to see birds and aquatic species. Although a great distance is not covered its very interesting and informative.
Footsteps Camp, home to our Young Explorers (specialized family safari) and Footsteps Across the Delta (walking safari) will remain open until the end of the month (November). The mokoro activity is currently suspended until water levels rise and the hippos inhabiting the channel move to deeper lagoons. We have to remember that we are visitors in their home and be gracious guests.
