Tour Map

What do we think?


We have put this tour together to come up with a truly excellent combination of wildlife activity followed great water activity, whilst trying to keep costs as low as possible. We think we have achieved it with this Baobab Tour.


Most people come to the Okavango Delta to see wildlife and also to experience the waterways that the Delta has to offer. Machaba Camp, situated in the Khwai Concession of the Delta, is a wildlife paradise of true excitement and one of the places that you can if you are lucky, go hunting with wild dogs or leopards.


Pelo is the flip side to this. Sitting in the Jao Concession, which Safari Lifestyles considers to be the most beautiful in Botswana, Pelo takes you to the real picture postcard side of the Delta where you will drift on mokoros or by powerboat through the Delta channels and floodplains.


Due to the very nature of Pelo Camp, this tour is only available in the peak season months but represents really one of the best value tours we have. it is worth considering extending Pelo from 2 nights to 3 if you want to experience more of the Delta waterways.

Days 1 to 3


3 nights Machaba Camp, Khwai Concession


After your arrival at Maun airport you will board a light aircraft for your transfer to camp. Machaba Camp is a fabulous lodge based right on the Khwai River in truly one of the best wildlife regions that Botswana has to offer.


Not many lodges sit on a river and it is this pretty, permanent river that attracts so much game including many predators with particular emphasis on the rare wild dogs. The camp itself is very ornate for a bush camp with lush furnishing and very sizeable accommodation.




Visit  Machaba

Days 4 and 5


2 nights Pelo, Jao Concession


Pelo Camp’s main area comprises a tented dining area and lounge situated under impressive wild date palms, jackalberry and Natal mahogany trees.


There is also an outdoor boma area and a raised platform. The five intimate guest tents have en-suite bathrooms and a covered front veranda. The bathroom has a flush toilet, running water in the basin and an outdoor bucket shower. The camp’s footprint is light allowing unobtrusive wildlife viewing and a sense of being at one with nature.




Visit Pelo

Day 6
