Well located on a permanent island deep in the delta, Camp Okavango is one of the more established tourist camps in this fabulous area of Botswana. A maximum of 24 guests are accommodated in 12 East African style tents built on platforms over the sandy ground. Shaded hammocks, reading benches and a delightful sundeck and plunge pool provide relief during the hot midday hours.

The complex features a main lodge building with a cocktail bar, lounge and wildlife reference library. The dining room leads onto an expansive open-air patio for evenings around the fireside. Other facilities include a secluded bird viewing hide and a sun-kissed deck with plunge pool for relaxing during the hot midday hours.

The camp offers boat and mokoro trips, as well as bush walks on nearby islands. Camps like this which concentrate on water activities tend to have a slower pace than those which also offer game drives; you’ll have more time to just relax.
