Overview of Magwegwe Camp

Escape to a remote corner of Botswana’s sprawling Okavango Delta for an exclusive wilderness getaway on 30,000 hectares of lush conservancy in the Abu Private Reserve. Tucked away in the western regions of the Delta, this largely unexplored territory provides a unique wildlife experience through a mobile camping safari. The floodplains benefit from year-round surface water that attracts a wealth of wildlife, including large herds of elephants that traverse the grasslands in search of fresh water sources.

Magwegwe Camp is part of Beagles Expeditions’ exclusive mobile camping experience along one of the Delta’s lush tributaries – the Kweene River. The camp offers a gateway to islands dotted along the Delta and the beauty of boundless floodplains. You’ll delight in the minimalist allure of a private canvas tent that offers luxury comfort with a low impact and eco-friendly edge.

An unforgettable African safari experience awaits you. The Beagles Expeditions team offers an assortment of exciting wilderness adventures that begins with a scenic helicopter flight into Magwegwe Camp and extends to daily guided bush walks, game drives, and mokoro along the Delta. You’ll explore the expanse of this concession as a private or shared group safari.
