Lechwe Island Camp

Okavango Delta, Botswana

The camp is located in the southwestern sector of the Selinda private concession, in a seasonally flooded portion of the Okavango Delta where it joins into the Selinda Spillway. The campsite is situated on a wooded island overlooking a floodplain area, the channel in front of camp alternately flooded or dry depending on the season.

Accommodations are in 3m x3m dome tents, complete with mini-verandas, allowing you to feel more connected to nature, accentuating the feeling of the wild and untamed. Pure cotton linen bedrolls with duvets, on GI stretchers, bedside table with silver lantern and mini luggage benches add to the atmosphere. Shared separate toilet and shower `bathrooms' with old-style tin bucket showers and basins create simple serviced comfort.

Activities concentrate around the bushy and wooded islands, open plains and the flooded and dry channels surrounding the camp. In this area seasonal congregations of wildlife (especially in the late afternoons) make this a great experience on game drives, night drives and nature walks on the private concession.
