Camp Okavango offers some of the most beautiful and elegant Okavango accommodation available in this pristine region of the Delta, dominated by permanent channels and shallow floodplains, making activities primarily water-focused. There is no vehicle traffic to disturb the peace, from traditional mokoro rides, to safari boats, bush walks, optional helicopter rides and fishing (strictly catch and release).
Hidden amongst beautiful ancient mangosteen trees, the main area comprises a network of interconnected walkways and decks linking two lounge areas, a dining room, a curio shop, small library area and self service bar. Another wooden walkway leads to a very cool infinity pool right on the edge of the swamp, with plenty of comfortable sun-loungers under a shade-giving thatched lapa.
As for the suites, these elegantly designed havens are constructed from natural timber blending subtly into the surrounding woodlands, with glass doors that fold away in front of both the bed and a separate lounge area, creating an open space, extending out onto the private deck, which offers uninterrupted views of the natural surrounds.
