Camp Okavango

Nxaraga Island, Okavango Delta
Botswana’s magnificent Okavango Delta, the world’s largest inland delta, is a maze of deep lagoons, large lakes and hidden, meandering channels. During the annual flood season the Delta covers a vast area of over 6,178 mi² before shrinking to less than 3,475 mi² in the dry season. Trapped in a basin of parched Kalahari Desert sand, the freshwater oasis attracts wildlife that depends on the permanent waters of this unique environment.
Camp Okavango is an enchanting and authentically African safari camp situated on the remote Nxaragha Island. This hidden treasure in the heart of the permanent Okavango Delta, assures an unparalleled year-round water wilderness experience. To ensure a peaceful and genuine safari experience, Camp Okavango comprises just twelve intimate East African-style safari suites. Each is individually situated on a raised teak platform with en-suite facilities and stack away sliding glass doors that open on to a private open-air viewing deck with stunning views. The family suite includes two bedrooms that are both en-suite.

Camp Okavango’s main area comprises of a network of interconnected walkways linking up two lounge areas, a dining room, library, self-service bar and curio shop.  Sweeping ramps lead to the lower level deck with two open-air fire pits and comfortable seating areas to relax and take in the natural surroundings. There is a third deck with a rim flow swimming pool and thatched lounge deck for those warm summer days.
 
Water-based activities are conducted by experienced professional guides who will expertly navigate you through the many meandering, reed-lined waterways. Roam the vast expanses of water from the comfort of a modern motorboat or explore the intricacies of the Okavango Delta the quiet, old-fashioned way, in the traditional mokoro (dugout canoe).
 
For those wanting to get a little closer to nature, guided bush walks are conducted on a number of the nearby islands, offering an opportunity to track some of the larger land-based species that inhabit this water wilderness. Birding opportunities are outstanding and anglers may pit their skill against bream and tiger fish. Camp Okavango is a water-based camp and game-drive activities, using safari vehicles, is not possible.
