Camp Okavango is situated on the remote Nxaragha Island in the heart of the permanent Okavango Delta, assuring a year-round water wilderness experience. Camp Okavango's unashamed luxury blends with the Africa of old in the elegant thatch and lethaka main lodge buildings.
Camp Okavango is a water-based camp and game-drive activities, using safari vehicles, are not possible. Exploring the Okavango by mokoro, specially adapted boats or guided walking excursions on the islands surrounding Nxaragha Island will allow every visitor to the region the opportunity to truly experience what the Okavango Delta is all about.
The main lodge building, shaded by giant mangosteen trees, features a cocktail bar, lounge and wildlife reference library. The dining room leads onto an expansive open-air patio for evenings around the fireside offering guests a chance to view the stars beneath the crystal clear skies of Botswana.
Other facilities include a secluded bird-viewing hide and a sun-kissed deck with a plunge pool for relaxing during the hot midday hours. There is also a sleep out deck for guests staying 3 or more nights - there is no better way to round of a day in the Delta than heading into the bush just before sunset and sleeping out in a comfy bed under just the starry African night sky.
Guests are accommodated in East African-style safari tents, individually situated on raised woode platforms with en-suite facilities and private viewing decks. There are just 11 tents in total. For families, there is a Family Tent which consists of two adjoining en-suite tents. The camp can host a maximum of 24 people, ensuring an exclusive and intimate safari experience.
Special offers for longer stays or when booked as part of a longer itinerary may apply - details on request.
