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.

Water-based game-viewing activities are conducted by experienced professional guides who will expertly navigate guests through the many meandering, reed-lined waterways. Roam the vast expanses of water from the comfort of a modern motorboat or explore the intricacies of the Okavango Delta the old fashioned way, in the traditional contours of the Mokoro (canoe).
For those looking to get a little closer to nature, guided bush walks are conducted on a number of the nearby islands, offering an opportunity to track some of the larger land-based species that inhabit this water wilderness. Bird-watching opportunities are outstanding, and fishing for bream and tiger fish is also offered as an activity.

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.
