Delta Explorer Camp

Okavango Delta, Botswana

A maze of sparkling lagoons, meandering channels and overgrown islands, the Okavango Delta is the world’s only inland delta. Crystal clear channels spread over the Kalahari Desert with their papyrus-fringed banks and fertile floating islands. Elegant red lechwe and shy sitatunga are found in this watery wilderness, while lion and leopard share the floodplains with giraffe and elephant. Hippo inhabit the deeper channels and lagoons, where iridescent dragonflies, frogs of every color and jewel-like kingfishers live in the lush banks. The Okavango Delta is home to a large number of species, including some that are specially adapted to the semi-aquatic lifestyle, such as the elegant red lechwe and shy sitatunga antelope. Families of hippo frolic in the channels and lagoons, while roan and sable antelope are occasionally spotted in the open woodlands. Elegant giraffe and herds of zebra can be encountered on the floodplains. Lion prefer the drier areas, while leopard can be found in dense riverine forest. The sparkling channels teem with a variety of fish, while hundreds of bird species, frogs and insects inhabit the reeded banks.

The Delta Explorer Campsite is set in a private concession area bordering the Moremi Wildlife Reserve, with a complement of camp staff to cater for your needs. Explore the waterways, islands and waterways by mokoro (dug-out canoe) and enjoy game-viewing walks on the islands. You will reside in rustic yet comfortable and spacious safari tents with crisp linen-adorned beds and ensuite bathrooms with flush WC and refreshing bucket shower.
