Camp Okavango

  • Located in Botswana's Okavango Delta
  • 12 safari style tents
  • Mokoro and motorboat safari throughout the year
  • Bush walks, bird-watching and fishing

Travellers do not come to Camp Okavango to see the Big Five, but more to enjoy the scenery and experience a stay in a water-based camp.

This camp is an authentic and intimate safari camp, in the heart of the Okavango Delta. It is an extremely comfortable base from which to explore the Delta's tranquil waterways and impressive wildlife. 

Camp Okavango sits on the remote Nxaragha Island, bordering the Moremi Game Reserve

The main lodge consists of a lounge, cocktail bar, wildlife reference library, and a dining room leading onto a large deck and boma. Outside there is a sundeck, hammocks and a plunge pool, as well as a secluded hide for birdviewing.

The guest tents are raised on a teak platform and have en suite facilities and private sun decks.

Camp Okavango makes a good contrast to a "dry" safari camp, as it has water activities throughout the year. Guests can enjoy mokoro (dug-out canoe) and motorboat safari, as well as fishing, bush walks and bird-watching. There is less game to see here compared to many other camps but a stay here can be very worthwhile with some lovely sightings.

"Located deep into the northern channels of the Delta, Camp Okavango’s recent refurbishment sees it as one of the most luxurious water camps and one of the very best. I love combining this property with its sister camps Xakanaxa, Savuti Safari lodge or Leroo La Tau."
