Overview of Camp Okavango

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.

The camp is committed to preserving the Delta’s incredible natural beauty as far as possible , and all timber and furniture is from renewable plantations. An off-grid solar plant installations provides continuous electricity for thermodynamic geysers and LED lighting. All of the waste water is recycled through a state-of-the-art system to be reused on the grounds and airfield.

General Facilities

The public areas are spacious and consist of a series of decks on different levels, all with expansive views of the Delta. There are two fire pits for stargazing and nightcaps, and a rim-flow swimming pool for cooling off in the hot months from about October to March. All your water-based game-viewing activities will depart from the jetty, and the private airstrip is a 5-minute walk away. Game viewing is water- rather than land-based as Camp Okavango is in a permanent wetland.

There are also a lounge and bar area, a separate dining area, a library and computer room, and a safari shop.

There is a daily complimentary laundry service.

    Loved the different activities. The exercise of the game walk was welcome (and needed) after sitting in the car for so long. The food was the best here.

    Our favorite place was Camp Okavanga in the Delta and, we preferred the more intimate experiences of smaller lodges.

    Camp Okavango is a wonderful camp with wonderful staff. It was a good idea to make us start with this camp. Walking safaris were very nice. Nice rooms even if our deck was in the trees with no view.

    Camp Okavango was paradise! It was beautiful. The tents were luxurious, pool was lovely. The staff here was fantastic. They all made an effort to chat to us. It was very social with everyone eating together. The food was delicious. Our guide, Banda, was brilliant. We went on long walking safaris every morning. We learnt so much about the wildlife, tracks, dung!, flora and fauna. We felt safe and very well looked after. In the afternoons we were out on boats fishing or on the Mokoru boats with sunset drinks. It was such a romantic place and was better than we ever imagined.

    Chobe was wonderful although more “hotel” and therefore less personal. Food more to the tourist palate (or so some think) and staff with a few more issues. Our room was great and the animal sightings were truly remarkable. There is a great and delightful advantage to being on a property right in this magnificent park.

    In particular, Camp Okavango and especially Duma Tau were the best lodges we stayed in: we appreciated not only the quality of the accommodation, but also the kindness and the competence of the guides. We met very well prepared and smart guys who made it possible for us to live through the real African wildlife.
