Gorgeous and more affordable Okavango Delta wet camp.

 

This camp as of 2017 is completely rebuilt to a hight and more modern standard than the the other DDS lodges .

 

The lodge itself sits in a truly beautiful location which takes full advantage of the Delta floods which occur annually providing guests with superb wet camp activities.

 

Its a also a good area to walk in and then can be quite a good variety of game on hand...

 

Overall we really like this new camp and its a great addition to the wet Delta camps we have here.

Camp Environment

 

The camps environment is woodland and scrub. The general areas surrounding the island that the lodge sits upon is floodplain where waters extend depending on the flood levels per year.

 

Botswana’s magnificent Okavango Delta, the world’s largest inland delta, is a maze of deep lagoons, large lakes and hidden, meandering channels. During the annual flood season the Delta covers a vast area of over 16,000 km² before shrinking to less than 9,000 km² in the dry season. Trapped in a basin of parched Kalahari Desert sand, the fresh water oasis attracts wildlife that depends on the permanent waters of this unique environment.

 

Camp Okavango, an enchanting and authentic African safari lodge situated on the remote Nxaragha Island at the heart of the permanent Okavango Delta, assures an unparalleled year-round water wilderness experience.
