Situated on remote Nxaraga Island in the heart of the Okavango Delta's permanent wetlands, Camp Okavango assures a year-round water wilderness experience. Explore the area's winding, reed-lined channels and thick riverine forests on boats or mekoro for rare species such as the sitatunga antelope and Pel's fishing owl, and get great views of large mammals like elephant, giraffe and buffalo.
The experienced and well-trained resident guides will introduce you to the Delta on mokoro (fibeglass canoes based on a traditional dugout design) or motorboat safaris. You will also be guided on thrilling nature walks around the smaller nearby islands, which are great for bird watching - look out for carmine bee-eaters, lilac-breasted rollers and African fish eagles.
There are only 11 suites and one family room, all connected by silligna wood walkways through ancient mangosteen trees. In addition to an airstrip and pilot's room, Camp Okavango has two fire pits, a rim-flow swimming pool, and several expansive viewing decks for game viewing by day and stargazing by night. All suites and walkways are raised, allowing the vegetation to flourish and for smaller game to pass through unhindered.

An off-grid solar plant installations provides continuous electricity for thermodynamic geysers and LED lighting.
