Delta Camp
Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

Retaining unique charm, each of the seven enormous chalets is individually designed and decorated by a local artist. Built under, around and into the trees, the chalets are thatch and reed constructions on elevated wooden decks. Nature passes through these ephemeral shelters like water through a sieve.

Delta Camp is almost entirely solar-powered including the hot water in your en suite bathroom which has a flushing toilet and wonderful open-air - but totally private - shower.

The living area of the camp, like the chalets, opens out to the water channels and marshland of the Okavango Delta. Comfy couches and Morris chairs, hand-woven rugs, a large verandah and an airy dining area combine to set the mood of tranquil reflection.

Although the safari activities at Delta Camp are dictated by the water levels, most of the time you will have the option of both water safaris in a traditional dug-out (mokoro) and walking safaris on the islands. For the duration of your stay your personal guide - a man born and bred in the Delta - will show you his back yard; you can even visit his family in the nearby village and you will come away with a deep connection with your surroundings. The whole experience at Delta Camp is rather more profound and intimate than your average high-end safari.

The Okavango Delta is famous not only for its Eden-like wilderness but also for its abundant wildlife, even here deep in the watery channels of the world's largest inland delta. Elephants love it here as do hippos and a variety of plains game including lion, buffalo, leopard, giraffe, zebra and rare water-loving antelope like lechwe, tsessebe, sitatunga and waterbuck. Birdlife, with all this water, is not surprisingly prolific and many smaller creatures thrive in this more gentle environment including cervals, genets, civets, badgers, otters, pangolin as do reptiles large and small from the crocodile to the gecko.

Facilities

Full board accommodation in 7 large thatch and reed chalets; open-sided en suite bathrooms with solar-powered hot water and flushing toilets; private verandah and sitting area; king-sized beds and mosquito drapes; living area with lounge, dining area and verandah; access is by light aircraft and mokoro transfer (20kg luggage limit in soft bags is strictly enforced)

Activities

Private guide for each chalet/group; mokoro safaris - genuine traditional dug-out canoe poled by your guide through the water channels of the Delta; guided walking safaris; overnight camping on an island is highly recommended
