A throwback to the authentic safari camps of days gone by, Camp Maru is shaded by a small grove of giant leadwood trees and consists of just 6 luxurious safari tents, offering an intimate and exclusive safari experience in the Okavango Delta.
The camp is located in a private concession bordering the Moremi Game Reserve, on the edge of a permanent lagoon which attracts a whole host of animals and birds in all shapes and sizes. Guests can enjoy game drives both in the day and at night, along with guided bush walks and mokoro excursions. The area around the camp is incredibly diverse, including mopane woodland, acacia trees, savannah, floodplains, permanent channels and tiny islands to explore.
This region is also well known for its spectacular year-round game viewing, with daily sightings of elephant, buffalo, hippo, giraffe, zebra and other plains game. Notable predators such as lions, hyena, African wild dog and the elusive leopard are often seen regularly.
For those who are keen birders, the variety of birdlife is particularly impressive between November and March when the summer migrants visit.
Each of the safari tents are styled after the romance of the 1930s safari, and overlook the lagoon which is always a hub of activity.
The main guest area has both an open air lounge and dining tent, along with a shaded veranda and welcoming campfire.
Special offers for longer stays or when booked as part of a longer itinerary may apply - details on request.
