Camp Okavango

Tucked away on an island in the Okavango Delta’s permanent wetlands, Camp Okavango delivers an authentic delta experience.

Tucked away on an island in the Okavango Delta’s permanent wetlands, Camp Okavango delivers an authentic delta experience. The camp’s 12 East Africa-style tented suites are set under sprawling riverine trees and look out over miles of unspoilt wilderness.

Accessible only by air or boat, Camp O – as it is affectionately known – offers year-round water activities, allowing guests to feel the flow of the delta as they drift down lazy channels on motor boats and mokoros, the delta’s traditional canoe. Expert local guides point out rare antelope and birds while elephants make their presence felt as they wander from island to island.

Ideal in combination with one of the Okavango Delta’s land-based camps, Camp Okavango has a romantically remote feel and the absence of vehicles adds to the ambience. Little wonder then that the camp’s private Okavango Suite, a cosy thatched cottage, comes highly recommended as a honeymoon hideaway!

Lodge Highlights:

  • Water-based camp on a beautiful island setting
  • Motor boat safaris & canoe adventures
  • Guided safari walks & bird watching
  • Remote, romantic atmosphere – honeymoon perfect!

About Camp Okavango

The Luxury Tents

  • Spacious Walk-in Tents
  • Private Viewing Deck
  • En Suite Bathroom
  • Honeymoon Cottage Available

Camp Okavango’s 12 East Africa-style tented suites are each set under a shady tree and, thanks to their private wooden decks, have wonderful views over permanent wetlands. The suites are raised off the ground and have their own bathroom. Solid wooden furniture and quality furnishings lend a homely feel to each tent, and the glass sliding door makes for easy access to the viewing deck. For the ultimate in exclusivity, the Okavango Suite is a safari-chic thatched cottage which offers honeymooners and couples an extra layer of privacy and indulgence.

Camp Facilities

  • Lounge
  • Bar
  • Secluded Bird Hide
  • Swimming Pool
  • Sundeck
  • Wildlife Reference Library

Camp Okavango’s lounge and bar are part of the main building, a grand thatch and timber affair but the main restaurant flows out onto a shady patio where breakfasts and lunches are served on fine days. Dinners are an elegant silver-service affair at the lodge or in the privacy of your own suite. The camp’s swimming pool offers relief on a hot Okavango afternoon – perhaps pick a book from the library and retire to a sun lounger. Guests can also make use of the camp’s bird hide – and with some 400 recorded species in the area, chances are they will have their hands full.

Activities at Camp Okavango

  • Game Viewing by Motor Boat
  • Mokoro (Canoe) Safaris
  • Guided Walks
  • Fishing Trips

Being situated in permanent wetlands means Camp Okavango offers water-based game viewing. Much like their 4X4 equivalents, the camp’s expertly piloted motor boats head off in the morning and afternoon to patrol quiet backwaters and open lagoons for a diverse range of animals. Hippos and crocodiles are often seen, as are elephants as they move between islands. The bird life is spectacular and best experienced on a guided walk when you’ll be on the lookout for delta specials like Pel’s Fishing Owl, Slaty Egret and Pygmy Goose. Game viewing and photography continues at a slower pace on a mokoro adventure, when you explore by canoe, your local guide steering you deftly through the maze of lily flowers and nodding heads of papyrus. Fishing trips for bream and tiger fish complete the picture.

Reviews

They kept us fully informed and updated throughout planning, travel, etc.

It was excellent all around. Everything worked out well. An experience of a lifetime! The game viewing rides were fun and very informative.

Karen
Perfect

We are six older but experienced travellers who usually do our own planning. Luck led us to Safari Online and Walter. His ideas proved spot on. Throughout our planning Safari Online have been helpful, always answering emailed questions, no matter how basic, straightaway. We’ve had probably our best ever holiday in years of travel, everything went smoothly. Pickups and transfers were on time. Staff in all the places we stayed were friendly and helpful. I can’t think of one adverse remark except maybe seeing a lion that wasn’t asleep, though I think if it could have been arranged Walter would have done so.

Jennifer
Above expectations

Excellent communications and service. We dealt with Sabrina and she is awesome. The safari tour was amazing, i can highly recommend going to Elephant Plains. Its a very special place run by awesome people.

Werner
Professional, patient, efficient and responsive. Met all our travel needs and requirements spot on

Communication was excellent – I asked A LOT of questions and did a ton of research myself and Walter was extremely patient with me and very responsive. he was straight forward and extremely professional.  Tour itself was excellent – an incredible experience and one never to be forgotten. Everything was spot on.

Neena
Excellent service and support for our Africa vacation

Working with Walter was a great experience. He listened to us and helped us build a vacation that exceeded all of our expectations. We really appreciated his professionalism and attention to detail.

Dan
A great tour operator that was a pleasure to deal with.

We used Safari Online to put together a mid-range Botswana trip for a group of four going to three different camps and then onto Vic Falls. We asked several operators to provide options (through this great safari bookings website) and Walter Kohrs from Safari Online was easily the most responsive and quickest to provide different but realistic options and at good prices. In the end it was a no brainer to go with Safari Online. Walter always responded to my queries quickly, with honest and valuable responses that were clear and made sense. From our perspective he tailored a good mix of places for both our budget and standard of facilities that suited us perfectly, with enough information and links to help us make our decisions. In the end each camp was different and had different aspects and strengths that made each unique. We loved it.

Shane
Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver. She responded to our requests promptly and gave us several options with links to each option; we ultimately chose Lukimbi. She then coordinated our flights to and from the property, arranged the drivers necessary to get us from the airport to the lodge and back again, and sent the appropriate paperwork to each of us to verify each step of the process. We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!
