General information

The Okavango is a unique ecosystem of papyrus-lined waterways, knee-deep floodplains, water-lily lagoons, shady forest glades and rich savannah grasslands. Using Camp Okavango as your base, this intricate water wilderness can be explored and enjoyed.

Exploring the Okavango by mokoro, specially adapted boats or guided walking excursions on the islands surrounding Nxaragha Island will allow every visitor to the region the opportunity to truly experience what the Okavango Delta is all about. The main lodge building at Camp Okavango, which houses the reading lounge and cocktail bar, opens out onto an expansive outdoor lounge and fire place built under the shady boughs of huge Jackelberry trees.

The elevated rooms are located along pathways which meander out to the left and right of the main lodge building. Each room has its own unique view into the lush Okavango forest from its own private deck. For the romantic honeymooner or the guest who prefers that added extra when traveling, Camp Okavango offers an exclusive suite. From the suite, the view of the Papyrus lined channels and distant wooded islands are spectacular.

Camp Okavango has its own private airfield which is located a mere five minute walk from the main lodge area on Nxarahga Island. Alternatively Camp Okavango can be reached by means of a scheduled boat transfer system linking Xugana Island Lodge and Camp Moremi to Camp Okavango.

Okavango Delta

Probably the most precious wetland in the world, The Okavango is a river delta that feeds into dry land instead of the sea. It is the only one of its kind. The Okavango Delta is a unique oasis at the northern edge of the sands of the Kalahari Desert. Flood rain waters from the Angolan highlands are carried by the Okavango River into the delta where it spreads out creating countless waterways and lagoons over an area of approximately 10,000 square kilometres.
