Oddball’s Enclave

Oddballs’ Enclave is situated on the south western edge of Chief’s Island, bordering the Moremi Game Reserve deep in the heart of the Okavango Delta.

Located on a small island the camp enjoys spectacular views across the floodplains to the distant island forests.

The camp accommodates a maximum of 10 guests in five twin or double bedded mini-Meru tents. The tents are on elevated wooden decks, each with semi-detached bathroom facilities that include hot and cold running water for the alfresco bucket showers and flush WC, and all tents open out to views over the Delta. Guest areas include a variety of comfortable seating with raised viewing decks and meals are enjoyed on deck, with spectacular views across the floodplains. 

Activities at Oddballs’ Enclave include only walking and mokoro excursions with your private guide (maximum of two guests per guide). Here homage is paid to the adventure safari. Your guide is a man of the swamps, born and bred in the area, with intimate knowledge of the landscape. He owns his mokoro and will take you out in the early mornings and afternoons to nearby islands, where he will walk with you for game viewing and spectacular scenery. Birding and cultural village interactions are also part of the experience.

Safari Experience

Oddballs’ Enclave offers only walking and mokoro, the traditional dug-out canoe of the swamps.

Your private guide (maximum of two guests per guide) was born and raised in the area.

He owns his mokoro (the genuine wooden article, no plastic replicas for us) and will take you out on it in the early mornings and afternoons, to nearby islands where he will walk with you to view game and the spectacular landscape that is the Okavango.

On request, the camp will pack a picnic lunch for you, allowing you to stay out the whole day.

Wildlife & Birdlife

Game of all sorts abounds: lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant, hippopotamus, crocodile, giraffe, all manner of antelope including the rare lechwe, tsessebe and sitatunga, otters, honey-badgers, the shy pangolin, and a variety of the smaller wild cats such as civets, servals and genets are amongst the many mammal species you may see.

Reptiles are well represented – many species of snakes (most of them harmless) occur, as do several of tortoise, terrapin, lizard, skinks, chameleon and gecko – not forgetting, of course, the Nile crocodile, of which some particularly large specimens inhabit the area.

Then of course there are the birds, well over 450 species.
