Accommodation is for a maximum of 16 guests in seven spacious lethaka (reed) chalets with en-suite bathrooms. Built of natural materials and elevated off the forest floor, each chalet has hot and cold running water, a shower with a view and solar-powered electric lighting. Each room is different in design and décor, adapted to fit around the ancient trees of the island forest, open to the spectacular natural environment, and positioned to capture the best views of the landscape.
A water-based camp, Delta Camp offers twice daily guided nature walks on neighbouring islands, birding and traditional mokoro (dug-out canoe) excursions (excursion length is water level dependent). The mokoro guide is a “man of the swamps” from a local village. Guests also have the opportunity to enjoy a cultural interactive village visit with their guide.

Open all year round
Delta Camp’s guests enjoy the luxury of their own private guide. The guides are locals – this is a man of the swamp, born and raised in the area, and you will spend your days in his mokoro, gliding through the floodplains and channels, and walking under his guidance on some of the many islands in the area, taking in the magnificent scenery and light as well as the abundant game and bird-life of the Okavango.
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 450 species of birds.
Delta Camp offers the purest traditional Okavango Delta experience; local guides, hand-made wooden dug-out mokoro, no motorised activities, no generators in camp – we revel in the tranquility that brought us here in the first place.
This is a traditional Okavango safari with your own private guide.
