Camp Okavango is situated on the remote Nxaragha Island, a lush green haven in the middle of the permanent Okavango Delta. This means it is open all year, even in the green season and offers an incredible wildlife viewing experience.
Camp Okavango is part of the well respected Desert and Delta group. Other camps in this group include: Camp Moremi, Camp Xakanaxa, Savute Safari Lodge, Xugana Island Lodge, Leroo-La-Tau and Chobe Game Lodge.
This is a small and intimate water-based camp with just 11 lovely traditional safari suites and one Family Safari Suite with two bedrooms. The camp accommodates a maximum of 24 guests. Each suite is individually situated on a raised wooden platform with a private deck, accessed via sliding doors, for soaking up the fabulous scenery and wildlife on your doorstep. The suites all have lovely en-suite bathrooms with double showers. One of the suites is particularly secluded, the Okavango Suite, and perfect for honeymooners.
Interconnected walkways link up two lovely lounge areas with a selection of books to read, while sweeping ramps lead to a restaurant and bar. There is also a game viewing hide and a small swimming pool for a refreshing dip in the heat of the day. In the evening the two fire pits are the perfect place to sit and enjoy a drink.
Camp Okavango is a accessed by light aircraft flight. It is a 30 minute flight from Maun. The camp is then just a 5 minute walk from the airstrip.
Due to its location in the Delta and on an island all the wildlife activities are done on foot or by boat - there are no 4x4 game drives. You can explore miles of wilderness by motorboat or explore the channels and lagoons of the Delta in the traditional mokoro (dugout canoe) led by an expert guide who knows the channels well. You can also explore on foot on a guided bush walks to the surrounding islands. Here you can track bigger game. Birding and fishing are also amazing here.
