Part of the previously named "Orient Express" group, this lodge leans very heavily towards high standards of service perhaps rather than a safari experience, although that does not take anything away from its activities.
The lodge sits in stunning surroundings offering only water based activities, its position ensures privacy in an area that is quite bereft of lodges. Aside from the camp being part of a huge group of global tourism they have definitely managed to keep it an intimate affair and do do take advantage of their location beautifully.

This region as would be expected is strong on aquatic animals with large pods of hippo existing along side many and large crocodiles. Red lechwe are plentiful and this is a very good area to spot the hard to see sitatunga antelope.
Birdlife is also plentiful with something approaching 450 species of birds recorded. The areas regions are diverse but some of the birds most associated with the regions are revolve around the waterway and include the African fish eagle, African darter, great white pelican and saddle-billed stork.
Here you experience the remoteness of the Okavango Delta and get a bird's eye view of the inaccessible lakes and islands.
Helicopter flights over Botswana are one of life’s big adventures. Hunting has rarely been done from above and therefore animals are unperturbed by aircraft. Surprisingly, you may hover just a few feet over great herds of zebra as they continue to graze, completely unconcerned....... Additional Rates May Apply
On a walking safari through the Delta you are totally enveloped in nature. You spot amazing things close-up: an insect, animal tracks, big game droppings, swarming termite mounds. These small, unexpected aspects of life often make the biggest impression. If a game drive is like reading a book: a walking safari is like actually becoming a character in that book.

The Okavango Delta is rightly considered one of the most incredible wilderness sanctuaries in Africa. It is the largest inland delta system in the world, an area of 15 000km2 filled with water channels, lagoons and islands. What makes this area truly remarkable is that it is a wetland paradise located deep within the arid Kalahari Desert.
Each year, floodwaters flow from their catchment areas in the moist central African highlands over 1 000km away into the Delta to create the miracle that is the Okavango. This unique area sustains a huge diversity of fauna and flora, so that game viewing is excellent right through the year.
