Lodge Setting
  • rooms

    Delta Camp accommodates up to 16 people in delightful reed chalets that have been designed and built to take advantage of the many indigenous, old-growth trees of the island forest. Elevated off the forest floor, they have been positioned to benefit from the stunning views of the bush and floodplains. Each chalet has an en-suite bathroom with hot and cold running water, a shower with a view, mosquito netting, and solar-powered electric lighting. Surrounded by delightful local artwork and furniture created by local craftsmen, the chalets are really charming, incredibly spacious and comfortable - a great place to relax before the next adventure beings.

  • facilities & activities

    Designed to blend elegantly into its surroundings, the main camp is elevated to take full advantage of the spectacular vista of swamp and riverine forest that lies beneath. Delta Camp’s lounge is colourful and inviting, with plenty of comfortable sofas and chairs and a good collection of books. There is a great viewing deck with lots of seating - look out for game , elephants and hunting lions, leopard, hippo and crocodiles.

    Game-viewing is entirely on foot or in a private mokoro (traditional dug out canoe). Activities centre on traditional walking safaris with your own private guide, but there is also the opportunity to take part in the Chief’s Island Walking Trail, which is a fully-serviced camping expedition. The guides are exceptionally knowledgeable and friendly so you are in good hands. Guests are encouraged to visit the local village, home to all the lodge guides - it's a great opporunity to see how the local peoplelive and to learn more about their culture.

    Exploring the Okavango will introduce you to the some of the world’s best displays of wildlife; home to over 450 bird species, a spectacular array of plant species and the full spectrum of African game and all against a backdrop of crystal-clear channels, lily-studded lagoons, sweeping floodplains and countless islands – this is an adventure not to be missed.

  • dining

    The delightful dining room enjoys sweeping views of the Delta, with stunning views of the surrounding floodplains and local wildlife. Meals are taken here unless you are out for the whole day, in which case you will be given a picnic lunch. Food is delicious - made with fresh vegetables, imported cheeses, excellent meats and fine wines flown in daily. Tea and coffee are always available and the open bar will keep you refreshed.

  • family

    Children of all ages are welcomed with open arms at Delta Camp. There are no age restrictions - as it’s just you and your personal guide, you can decide what your children are capable of and your safari will be tailored to meet your family’s needs. The camp will certainly keep children entertained; they will receive a great booklet containing guides and checklists so they can keep track of the wildlife they see, and when they’re not out exploring they will love listening to stories around the camp fire. The housekeepers are very happy to babysit and entertain your children at no extra cost.

    There are two family rooms with a double and two singles. Alternatively, there are three triples with one double and one single. Each room has an en-suite bathroom with hot and cold running water, a shower with a view, mosquito netting, and solar-powered electric lighting.
