Okavango Delta, Botswana

Silver price level

Mango Opinion

This camp is a lovely, relaxing addition to any safari. With only walking or water-based activities this is a great option for those wanting to get a little closer to nature. It is worth noting that no game drives mean you will likely not see many big mammals. Best to combine with a more wildlife rich camp so you can get your us close elephant and lion photos.
