Camp Okavango’s elegant thatch and lethaka main lodge building, shaded by giant Mangosteen trees, features a cocktail bar, lounge and wildlife reference library. The dining room leads onto an expansive open-air patio for evenings around the fireside offering guests a chance to view the stars beneath the crystal clear skies of Botswana. Other facilities include a secluded bird-viewing hide and a sun-kissed deck with plunge pool for relaxing during the hot mid-day hours.
Camp Okavango accommodates only 24 guests in intimate exclusivity in East African-style safari tents, individually situated on raised teak platforms with En-suite facilities and private viewing decks. For those who demand the ultimate in exclusivity, Camp Okavango boasts the “Okavango Suite”, a thatched cottage offering complete privacy - ideal for honeymooners.
Water-based game-viewing activities are conducted by experienced professional guides who will expertly navigate guests through the many meandering, reed-lined waterways. Roam the vast expanses of water from the comfort of a modern motorboat or explore the intricacies of the Okavango Delta the old fashioned way, in the traditional contours of the Mokoro (canoe).
For those looking to get a little closer to nature, guided bush walks are conducted on a number of the nearby islands, offering an opportunity to track some of the larger land-based species that inhabit this water wilderness. Bird-watching opportunities are outstanding, and fishing for bream and tiger fish is also offered as an activity.
